can get gmail, blogger pages and sites affiliated with google but nothing else. No facebook, ebay, myspace, hotmail...basic stuff. Nothing else either. I use Firefox as a browser. I checked my preferences in both Firefox and Google. I was told by google help to make sure I can accept cookies. Done. Nothing changed. I was instructed by Firefox help to clear my private data. Done. Still nothing. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
