I compliment you on stating the important information of what applications and functions your machine was handling at the time you noticed the problem beginning.
Unfortunately, the information does not suggest a clear path for finding a solution.
General experience of many satisfied firefox customers would argue that Firefox is not the culprit here.
However, since you only recently Upgraded Firefox, one is tempted to guess and rule-out the possibility of a corrupted download or fault occuring during the installation.
To Rule-out such a possiblility, please completely Uninstall Firefox.
Then using your IE or other browser, go to the Mozilla site to get a fresh download of Firefox 18.104.22.168.
Allow the download to be "saved" to a folder on your machine, and then Install it from the saved folder, rather than allowing Firefox to perform the installation from the online source.
Of course, the above "may" correct your problem completely........ or not.
Most frequently, when internet access slows down or stops, the problem is: (in the following order)
--Infection with Malware
--Corruption of the Browser
--Excessive "junk files" and auto-udating files of non-junk applications
--Insufficient "free-space" on the Hard Drive, or heavily fragmented files on the Hard Drive
--Missing or corrupted Operating System Files
Download and Run (one) of the following: CleanUp! 4.52, Ccleaner, ATF-Cleaner
Download, install, update, and Run:
--Spybot Search & Destroy, version 1.04
--AVG AntiSpyware 7.5
--Update and Run a full system scan with your AntiVirus
--Run (one) of the following online Scans
----Kaspersky Online Scan
In each case of the above recommended scans, allow removal/fix/quarantine of items that the scan identifies - *AND* -
---SAVE the log file from the various scans to post the information back here into this thread if malware is identified and removed.
Next, it would be useful to gather more information and a better overview of your machine.
