    Cannot load certain websites in Firefox
    I am running OS X 10.6.5 and using Firefox 3.6.13. When I try to access some websites, such as eHow | How To Do Just About Everything! | How To Videos & Articles, Firefox will not load them. eHow loads perfectly fine in Firefox 3.6.13 on my Windows-based (XP SP3) PC, so I am guessing this has to do with Mac.

    Could someone please help me? Thank you in advance for any help.

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    Loads nice and fast for me with same Firefox. Not a site you have accidentally prohibited access to and cookies enabled?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    How would I have prohibited access? I cannot remember doing anything like that.

    This is strange. It loads perfectly fine on the Windows, but not here.

    I found the solution. Peer Guardian was the problem, so I uninstalled it. I hope this has helped someone.

    Well PG is a utility for prohibiting access to web sites as suggested.

    One of those things that should not be used unless you know precisely what it does and how it works.
