Mint freezes when connected to the internet.
I'm very stupid when it comes to computers, so please forgive me if this is something so simple you 6 year old kid could fix. Mint 11 works just fine until i try to connect to the internet. Firefox comes up and then it freezes before it can bring up the page. Mouse won't move, none of the lights on the key board will come on, caps lock, number lock, ect.

I've not used Mint 11, but here we go... Can you tell us how much RAM you have in this computer? And was Mint 11 installed fresh, or was it upgraded from an earlier version?
Before you open FireFox, do this.
Open a Terminal window, which you can find under an Applications Menu. Perhaps System Tools. Run these 3 commands:
sudo fdisk -l df -h free -m
That's a lower case L in the fdisk command, not a number one.

Let's try the simple stuff first.
Since you installed, have you run any system updates, at all? If not, do this in a terminal.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade

If that doesn't work, try renaming the .mozilla directory in your home directory. The . in front of the name means it's hidden so in Nautilus you will need to press Ctrl + h to see it.
