I have a very odd problem with firefox 3.6. It works perfectly however it refuses to load 1 specific site: http://www.kirupa.com (flash tutorial/forum site) every other site works fine. Chrome & IE have no problems loading kirupa.

I already tried the following:
-Checked my computer with combofix, it came up with nothing as far as i could tell. (I don't have any other problems so i don't think it's a spyware problem)
-Run firefox in safe mode.
-Reinstalled firefox (inlcuding deleting all settings)

Here come's the odd thing: I created a new account on my windows XP and kirupa loads fine (but not on my main account). So if anyone has any brilliant ideas please let me know.

Maybe you have a corrupt Firefox profile. You may need to create a new profile. Do not delete old profile but uncheck Dont ask at startup and Exit.
