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.
(In reply to comment #4) > Did you restart Firefox after you added the pref ? Yes
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?
