Server not found problem with latest version of Firefox. Copy and paste of URL works some of the time after the server not found error message. This has been happening for several weeks. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just try to go to a link with version 3.5.
2.
3.


Expected Results:  
Server not found

Connected to the link.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2.6pre) Gecko/20100612 Namoroka/3.6.6pre

This works fine for me. Does this also happen in safe-mode / with a new profile?

I made the Prefetch change and I still have the same problem. I am using Qwest as my provider.
Did you restart Firefox after you added the pref ?

I am also using Google  Chrome with Firefox. Out of seven links, four worked and three had a server not found. One of the not found was a Google URL. After I copied and pasted it found it.

Tonight all links failed. The server not found was www.googleadservices.com. Very strange because it is google. Hope someone has a suggestion.
I can't reproduce your problem.
Can you try to change the DNS servers in your windows system from the router to another DNS server like the google one ?

Reporter -> Are you still experiencing this issue? Did you try a different DNS provider as suggested in comment 8?
