Is there a setting or config that is keeping me from typing the actual numeric address of a website, after which it tells me "could not connect to server"?

From time to time I will plug a numeric address for a website into the address bar, but when I do, Firefox just hangs for awhile, then tells me could not connect me to the server. This is fishy. (phishy?)

Chosen solution

What format are you using for the IP Address?

If I type 98.124.44.207 in the address bar it takes me to google. Does that work for you?
