User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2 While trying to open certain web pages (problem does not exist while navigating between pages of the same site, but only when navigating to new sites), I receive one of several similar error messages, generally stating that the page cannot be found. This problem will occur with sites of known reliability (such as google.com) just as often as others. The problem began only after I upgraded from Firefox 1.01 to 1.02. Sometimes a page will open only if opened within a blank tab; other times the browser refuses to open ANY page. This latter problem is usually remedied only by restarting the browser several times, or by restarting the computer. I am fairly certain this is not an issue with my internet connection, as other programs continue to function normally (IM, IRC, etc.) Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: I can reproduce the problem on my own computer, but I do not know how or if it can be reproduced on another computer. 1. Open any web page in the current tab (sometimes the error occurs, not always). Actual Results: Error looking up the specified page. In the status display in the bottom left, it reads "Looking up DOMAIN.org" until it displays the error. Expected Results: It should have navigated to the web page as expected. I have Verizon 10 Mbps DSL.
Your issue is covered in the Frequently Asked Support Questions see http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=106431.
Do you use a Firewall or Proxy ? Did you try a new profile (firefox -profilemanager) ?
Please reopen if properly configuring your firewall does not fix the problem. Thanks.
