Firefox wouldn't open site?

My browser firefox wouldn't open the site, however it cleared once I rebooted the computer. Has anyone else had this problem?

I posted over a year ago that I couldn't access the site at all via Firefox, even though Netscape (using supposedly the same Mozilla/Gecko engine) worked fine. Now that Netscape has gone defunct, I've recently found that the latest updated version of Firefox works a charm, and loads the movies 2-4 times faster than IE7, which I've therefore now stopped using for stardusting. Check that you have the latest version and updates.

I've never had any problems with Firefox, but also noted that the new version (3) load the movies _much_ faster. :-)

I'm using firefox 3 to browse this site and haven't noticed any problems. Typically, when it acts buggy, you're missing some plugins that the site requires.
