Apple Online Store does not load with Firefox

The apple online store doesn't work for me on firefox. It works on the Safari, Opera, and even the beta (or whatever it is) of Chrome.

I simply get this:

The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
It's been happening for a while now, but since firefox is my default browser, I find it frustrating to change browsers in order to access that website. The rest of the apple website works, only the store.

Any help?

Safari unable to find server

I have the opposite problem. I have safari on my Imac, Ipad, Macbook and during connecting o a site, I get "Safari unable to find server" Att& T even sent someone here and my DSL and speed test and all that is excellent, all lights stay green. If I hit my backbrowser and try it again then it connects. The site does not matter which one I anm trying to open. It happens on all. Any suggestions to a Novice?

Speak in terms I can understand please.:)
