Google breaks my internet

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
I have an extremely annoying issue: my internet connection works just fine, no dropouts whatsoever. I can access all sites, but as soon as I try to visit a site via google, my connection breaks. I get the "looking up blablabla-site" message and then "server not found"
I can close firefox then and go to the site directly and it'll work again!
Does anyone know why it ONLY happens when I try to go to a site via google?

Well it's not really breaking your internet connection just Firefox having an issue. As for why it won't go to google, have you tried clearing your cache + cookies?

HI thank for the reply. Maybe I didn't explain the situation clearly
The issue is, my connection works perfectly and I can open all sites, including google. I can even perform a search on Google, but as soon as I click on a search result, my connection breaks. ( I even get the yellow triangle)

When I close firefox then, I can type in any address and it works again. So only when I click a search result in Google, it messes up my connection.

What version of Firefox are you running?

Try it out in another browser, too.

Have you tried this with any other browser, IE9 or Chrome 10

Ok, I just tested it in IE9 there the connection doesn't break and google works normally.
I used FF 3.6.15 when everything worked fine. Then I upgraded to FF 4 and started having this issue with Google, so I downgraded to FF 3.6.15, but the problem still persists.
I'm really stumped, because it really only happens when I click a search result in google.

Hmm well a quick fix would be to export your bookmarks and uninstall FF and then reinstall it and import the bookmarks.

Did you try this when you downgraded?

I'll have a try. I simply clicked the setup file for ff 3.6.15. I hope it will work when I manually uninstall it.
Is it a known issue with FF 4 and Google search results?

Never heard of this problem before, but i would try uninstalling both versions of Firefox if you still have both installed and then reinstall 3.6.
