I cannot run my mozilla firefox, it says " website had been blacklisted".

Looks like you've installed some tool to protect your PC from accessing sites identified as "bad", which may contain malwares. (Softwares like "Advanced System Care" do this by adding lot of sites to the system blacklist - which you can edit anyway...). After this kind of inoculation, if your browser was hijacked by some malware (probably changing the homepage), you will get this symptom. So, pls try to change your homepage in the firefox.
Alternatively, someone could have installed an addon to do this in firefox itself. (ref )
Whatever it is, try to use some latest antimalware / antivirus to remove the unwanted things from your PC. Hope you got it. :)

In Mozilla fire fox 4.0, I can browse all the web site except I'm using windows xp service pack 3.Sometimes I got into but can't open any object. The message showed:- ...

Are you using your school's computer-network, or your employer's computer-network?

If so, then that network may _deliberately_ be blocking access to "time-wasting" sites, such as YouTube and eBay and Twitter and Amazon.
