It turns out that you can not access godaddy PIX firewall using the latest java, because the PIX control panel uses depricated java functionality, so you need to downgrade your java - following are steps on how to do this without uninstalling the latest java version you have:
You'll need to use java version 1.6.0_11 or older. Newer versions are not compatible with the Pix Device Manager.
You can install a second version of Java. And when you need to access the firewall you can disable the newer version.

Once installed navigate to Start > Control Panel > Java > Java > Uncheck all other versions > Ok.
