Firefox woon't work after changing isp

I have recently changed isp. Have been using firefox as my browser for a few years now. After changing isp firefox will no longer work. Only IE. Following keeps coming up:

Have contacted isp. Cannot help. Use avast and avg free. Windows firewall.

At a loss and no one else seems to know either. Suggestions greatly appreciated.

Is it only one URL?

Are you still able to type in the URLs to other websites an visit them normally, or is access to every website blocked within Firefox? Changing ISPs normally wouldn't cause such an issues, though related factors could include:

1.) ISP-supplied parental control software. Try disabling it and restarting your computer if it's installed.
2.) Modem configuration. Are you using the same modem or a new one, and have you customized or reset the configurations?
3.) Login requirement. Does your ISP require you to log into the service with a username/password before you can connect?

Let us know.

Honestly do not know what has happened but downloaded it again, set up with custom and not express and it seems to be working. Will keep your ideas in case. Thanks for help.

I had this problem before...

A friend changed ISP from Bellsouth (PPPOE) to RoadRunner. He was using a Linksys router and the settings for the router had to be changed to Automatic Configuration from the PPPOE configuration in order for the browsers to function. Could this be what you are experiencing?
