I failed to mention in my original posting that I can access those pages

So, I don't think it is a proxy/firewall issue.
I downloaded netscape, but with it I cannot even get to internet. It
doesn't pop up for the user id required by the proxy to get to internet.
:-( Needless to say that I tried to configure netscape the same I
configured firefox, in terms of proxy connections.
Any other good browser I can give it a try?
One or more of these may already be installed on your computer:
They're all character-mode browsers, start them in an xterm window. Note
that w3m doesn't play nice with konsole.

3.7.5 Strange access problems with some websites
Recent Linux kernels enable ECN by default, which may cause access
problems with some websites on bad routers. To check ECN status:
# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn
# sysctl net.ipv4.tcp_ecn
To turn it off, use:
# echo "0" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn
# sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_ecn=0
To disable TCP ECN on every boot, edit /etc/sysctl.conf and add:
net.ipv4.tcp_ecn = 0
