Internet Connection Problem

This morning I went out for breakfast to a place that has a Wifi. Everything appeared on my PC that I was connected to the internet. I could receive my mail OK. When I opened the Firefox, it just continued loading and I never got to a page. I have had the same problem a this location in the past. I finally gave up and went somewhere else and things were fine. == How is it possible that the mail works but not the browser? Anyone have any ideas?

Hi there,

Have you tried using a different browser other than FF?

You may also try refreshing your network profiles by removing them then re-add the Hotspot of your choice. Here's How.

Yes, I tried IE also, same thing. I will try refreshing the network if I have the same problem next time. It just seemed very strange that my email worked, but not the browser. Thanks for the tip.

It could also be due to so many Users using the bandwidth heavily trying to connect to the same Hotspot. An App/Program would work and not your internet connection or a hiccup from that Hotspot and it worked in another Public Wi-Fi.
