Cannot access SOME pages

I cannot access some pages when previously, I could. Doesn't matter which browser I use (IE, Firefox, K-Meleon, Opera). I could access all of the pages before. Didn't happen with all pages at once. Problem seems to get worse over time. Mostly with pages where I have a login, but not all. Usually get an indication that I can't access the page (, but with some, I can get to the page, but it will not log me in to the page( a proper login name and password.

I am thinking that it is either the network settings or my firewall, but I haven't changed ANYthing. I called my ISP and they charged me $80 for a service call that told them what we already knew (that my connection was active and working). I disabled ZoneAlarm and installed Comodo, and it didn't help at all. I haven't totally disabled the firewall out of concerns for security. I'm really confused and increasingly frustrated. This started several months ago. Does anybody know what's going on, and more importanly, how to FIX it???

I just accessed both with the same browsers with not real problems, except that of course K-Meleon (1.5a1) was lightning fast compared to the others. Most commercial sights requires Cookies to be enabled and requires javascript be enabled. And by the looks of things probably does too. Perhaps installing the latest Flash Player as PudgyOne suggested. Or perhaps installing (or reinstalling) the latest java will help.

What Is K-Meleon??

I have not heard that browser before.
And I thought I downloaded all of them.

Anyways, I do not recommend downloading anything that your computer should already have...It should already have a firewall for example.

Check the cookies and try using the "override automatic cookie handling" feature. I am not sure how select this feature this with EVERY browser, and perhaps you should check for everything to see if it needs updating: flash (ugh), java, and your internet browsers. (and if you are using downloaded firewalls, they might need to be updated also).
