I've found for the past few hours that I can't access pics.livejournal.com at all using a Mozilla browser (version 1.7, Win2K). If I try to load anything from within that domain, the browser just sits there pretending to load, gets to about 90% on the status bar and then makes no further progress. It doesn't seem to be timing out or giving an error message.
At first I figured the site was just slow at the moment and wasn't going to do anything about it. But I happened to be using IE for something else and found that it's connecting to pics.livejournal.com perfectly fine. (It's unlikely to be slowness on my end, since I'm using T1 ethernet from work). I haven't had this problem with any other sites. I also don't think it's a subdomain problem, since I can access paid account subdomains on LJ. Also, this problem came up some time in the past few hours; when I first logged on to LJ earlier on, I had no problems seeing pictures on my friends page that are hosted on FB.
Does anyone have any ideas what on earth could be causing this? Could it be a setting in Mozilla that I've accidentally changed, or something? I'm completely baffled.
