I have a problem with FireFox 2.0.0.0 saying "server not found" 3 out of 4 times I load the browser, nothing I can do but close and load again fixes it.  Every 3-4 loads it works, and will work fine until I close it, sometimes even then I will get the same message.   IE works flawlessly.  I've had this happen before and had to reinstall the OS as I could not find a solution.  I removed all extensions and themes, I wasn't running many anyway.

I instantly get back "Server not found" error when trying to load any page with Firefox.  Reinstalling firefox over itself does not work, in the past uninstalling firefox and reinstalling didn't work either.
