Can't Connect To The Internet Using Firefox Or Chrome?
Dec 13, 2012
Am experiencing the same problem where IE can connect to internet, but not Chrome, although the only change to my desktop PC (WinXP SP3) was a windows update. This issue seems to be quite common among all Windows OS because when I queried "can't connect chrome to internet" I've found over 50 posts at various forum describing your issue (and mine). I have also eliminated firewall, antivirus, etc and obviously since IE can get on the internet..my network connection is fine...as is/was yours. Looking more closely I'm thinking that somehow the specific port on outbound is not being accessed by Chrome/Firefox because I used a sniffer and see no request leave my pc and verified no request through my router either.
The winsock catalog in a namespace server configuration listing right? How would you explain that resetting the winspace catalogue fixes the issue?Wand3r3r said it was malware, but I'm quite sure we don't have that issue...I know my machine doesn't and this has occured on the library PCs also. I wan't to find sure fix and understand what is happening on the Windows stack, so that I can assuredly deploy Chrome on a student network and not see this re-occuring all over the place.
I cannot connect to the internet using firefox or chrome but there's no problem with internet explorer. This happened after I installed and uninstalled speedbit video accelerator. When opened chrome, it gave me the following error.
(net::ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED): Unknown error.
After the problem occurred, I rebooted the system, uninstalled firefox and chrome, freshly downloaded firefox (from IE) and the problem persists. I couldn't download chrome because chrome installer says it can't connect to the internet. Following are the details regarding my system and software.
o/s : windows 7 ultimate internet explorer : 9.0.8112.16421 64 bit firefox : 14.01
I tried stopping the firewall and the problem persists. Can't access router via firefox too!! Firefox doesn't give an error it just gives a blank page (about:home).
If this is a dns problem, how come it doesn't affect IE ?? Why can't utorrent listen on listen port ??
StartSSL offers free SSL certificates, so I'm guessing that means no Warning messages from browsers IE,Chrome,firefox atleast? Has anybody used this StartSSL certificate lvl1 is free..I'd tryed this myself but my hosting company is charging twice more for having ssl(just having it not even buying) than for hosting my website.
When I plugin with an ethernet cable to the router, I have no problems and I get the full 15mbps speed when doing speed tests and downloads. IE, Firefox, and Chrome all work fine.When I use the wireless, I only get 5mbps in IE and Firefox, but I get the full 15mbps again when using Chrome.I'm starting to wonder if there are shared Windows components being used by Firefox and IE, but not being used by Chrome. I have reinstalled my wireless adapter driver and it didn't affect anything. I've disabled Windows Firewall, checked for malware, confirmed no proxy was setup in Internet Options, on and on...
Few days ago I started to get the following error message while trying to connect to the internet using Chrome and IE:"Unable to connect to the proxy server..."I don't have a proxy server configured - nothing is checked in the LAN settings page.In Firefox I don't have that problem - it seems it gets the proxy configuration from elsewhere.
I can't connect to the internet through Google chrome or explorer, pages simply won't load.
-can't ping the pc from other pc but can ping the modem - internet shows connected and receiving data - all connections tight - internet/wireless modem working fine working fine with my other pc/laptop - all other programs on the pc seem to work fine - I have changed no settings on the pc since I last used it and the internet - I had not used the internet in approx 2 months on the problem pc - I tried turning off the firewall. - running XP
WIth Chrome it does work although a bit slow. With IE as-well.Had the problem with FB as-well allthough that i could cancel with allowing it to connect.Gmail doesnt.Production Security Services and the certificates seem to cause problems.Searched the internet; tried a scan, checked the date, activataed the SSL and TLS in the browsercertificates, the server and organisations names.
Since last night, my laptop has just been acting up and being very sluggish. In normal mode, I can connect to the internet fine, but nothing will load. The only way I can get it to work on normal mode is if I clear all of my private data before restarting my laptop, and even then it will only work for a few minutes then stop. Also, when I go to open chrome, it'll usually takes a few seconds before opening, and may even completely freeze up. The only time where I can actually get it to work reliably is when I open up safe mode with networking. I'm afraid it might be a virus or something but I've run scans and everything and nothing has come up.
I am having some trouble with the antivirus software.I had AVG antivirus installed but I thought it was causing some problems.So I unistalled it and downloaded a trial version of Bitdefender.Got it installed and found out I can't browse the web via Firefox. So I was trying to go through all the settings in Bitdef. but no luck.Uninstalled BD, rebooted the comp, still no internet. I did clean the registry and spyware as well.But the weird bit is that somehow I can browse the internet using old IE8 (64bit only. 32bit is not working?).I was also trying to re-install AVG but it could not complete as the connection with their server was blocked.It seems like something is blocking everything apart from 64bit ver. of IE8.
I have a problem on my Google Chrome explorer that if for example I am going to [URL] so every time I am clicking in a link (no matter what... some friend's profile, or friend's pictures...) I see only the blue Facebook bar on top and that it. So if I want to page to load perfectly I need to mark the address and click enter, and then the page loads perfectly.
An I need to do this any time I am entering any link. And it's not only on this site. it's also some others sites includes Twitter.
I tried to see if the problem continues in other explorer like firefox and IE, but not... it works perfectly there!
I am using Chrome as my primary broswer, but recently I can't get access to a particular website, but while I use other browsers to access that site, it is perfectly fast and without any problems at all. I don't know if i have accidentally pressed any key or accepted any setting that has made google chrome to block access to that site.
I am no longer seeing the "download this video" message while in Chrome 13 trying to download to Realplayer. I have updated Realplayer, Chrome was updated for me and several automatic updates have updated Windows 7. I read on the Real website that Realplayer does not work with Google Chrome 13. I tried downloading while in internet explorer but still had trouble.
I cant browse with my browsers (mozzila,chrome,int.exp.,opera).First thing i tried to do is fix my modem but its fine because i can connect via my laptop perfectly .My internet is not always blocked .I disabled firewall , deleted norton with norton removal(aldo i wasnt sure have i ever installed it ) , I unistalled my free antivirus called "Avira anti vir".Then i installed bit defender 2011
Recently i have to change my modem (lightning struck) which of course, done by my ISP worker.The problem is, since then, I've been getting the "DNS lookup failed" error message constantly while using Google Chrome. Or sometimes the "This web page is not available - The connection to [URL] was interrupted".I have to refresh the search once or twice to get to the site, which is very annoying. I tried surfing on my friend's laptop, using the same wireless connection and it seemed to work fine. This problem only occurred on MY laptop.One more thing is, the connection doesn't seem to go wrong because i could play online game with no trouble like lagging or disconnection whatsoever.

These are the details: ISP - Streamyx (malaysia) Broadband - ADSL wireless Modem - ZyXel p-600 series Anti-Virus - Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security Firewall - Windows Firewall
Is is possible to run Transmission or Google Chrome only using OpenVPN? Other applications should use default connection (eth0) since I am connected to Intranet which won't be accessible if all traffic is routed through VPN. I am using Ubuntu 12.10 and some Premium VPN server (similar to HMS VPN)
I have just gone through hours of tech support with my ISP and still cannot seem to get online. Problem is the same as recent posts by jerguy1928, with message "DNS lookup failed...." coming up in Google Chrome. Both IE and FF just say cannot connect.Running Windows 7 on laptop. I have tried alt DNS settings (Google and others), all the CMD suggestions, disabling firewalls etc, etc! Other computer in house connects just fine.Ping works fine. Really, there appears to be no reason to not be able to connect - since I am actually connected!
I am trying to download large files which are taking about 3-8 hours to download. I don't have that much time, so I have to put my computer into sleep mode. Now, the problem is, I put it into sleep mode, turn it back on, Chrome says the downloads are finished. I open one of them, and it says the file is corrupt.
I have a Cisco 1800 ISR router running IOS 12.4(22)T5.Clientless SSL VN is configured and working, and has three bookmarks.When logged into Clientless SSL VPN and displaying the portal page in IE-8, the bookmarks are visible and functioning as expected.When logged into Cleintless SSL VPN and displaying the portal page in FireFox-14 or Chrome-21, the bookmarks are not visible.The window for the bookmarks is displayed, but the content (file tree) is not.
everything was ok with my connexions, but, after a crash, when I run IE ou Chrome, I get the login screen of the 2 cameras, and I can enter my login en my password but after validation, nothing happens...This problem is only on my PC windows 7, and I can connect with all others stations LAN or WAN.All I remenber is that I have to delete a file in the system folder of my PC but what file ?
Whenever I try to use Firefox, no matter what website I try to go to, I get the message that firefox can't connect to the server. Whenever I try to go on safari, I get the message that it can't connect to the internet. However, when I use Opera, everything works fine, so it's not something wrong with my internet. At the same time, the website omegle stopped working for me, I don't know if this is related. When I open firefox, I also get the message "TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined". I don't know what that means, but it's probably involved.
I am setting up a Linux apache and bind server to test the behaviour of Windows XP,Vista, 7 and Mac OS X.I have setup a apache and bind already and they were tested individually. I used Firefox and IE to access the apache page by type in the IPv6 address and the page was showed correctly. And I have tried to query the AAAA record of a local zone "testing.com" in my Bind server using nslookup and the result is good too.However, it is strange that I cannot get it work if I type in the FQDN "http://testing.com" in Firefox and IE. I tried to capture the IPv6 traffic in Wireshark (Attached in this post) and there are no DNS query when I try to access the page. Is there anything that I have to set to get it work properly?(Actually I have tested the same thing on Mac OS X and Vista too but the result is the same)Below is my Windows 7 network setting and some nslookup query:
On my PC laptop, when we try to connect to the internet (wireless router) through firefox we get the error message"Firefox can't establish a connection to the server @ cn-us.start3.monzilla.com. When we try using Window explorer we get "Internet Explorer can't display webpage" When prompted to click on "diagnose connection problem" it states Windows did not find any problems with this computer network connection.
A couple of points... the connection indication at the bottom states the laptop is connected to the internet. (WLAN ON)I have a Mac that is connected to our internet and doesn't have any problems.We have Windows Vista on the PC laptop
i share internet with my neighbor (we split the bill) and every so often like in the last 2 days, and usually not again for another 3 weeks for 2-3 more more days each time, am not able to browse(ff, chrome, ie) or use windows live messenger, but yet if i turn on bittorrent, the downloads are fine, the trackers don't update, but DHT and peer exchange update fine.And also, i can get on Gameranger (which uses UDP port 16000) and play games, and this happens to all 5 computers on the network, (4 wireless at my house[3 XPs 1 Win7] and one wired at her house[Win 7]), so it's not something on the computer, also, usually when i check my router the subnet is usually 255.255.255.0 but this morning before i came to work i noticed it was 255.0.0.0 , not sure if that matters, this has been happening for months, usually between every 3-4 weeks, we have no browser and msn use for 2-3 days?
I've tried to upgrade firmware through chrome, but chrome abruptly shut down during upgrade.Since that, I have not even loggin set-up menu which should be shown up putting 192.168.0.1 to make it back. Amber light is just blinking on Power lamp.
