RE: ie does not work, firefox does
I think it's a IPv6.0 related issue, but do not know this for sure...
I had exactely the same problem; firefox ok, ie8 not...
Try Restart in safemode with network (press F8 upon restart) Internet
Explorer.. Now a message box should appear, press "YES". Restart Internet
Explorer to check if it is working...
Restart PC in normal mode.
I am sure there are other sollutions to this
