I started using Firefox in 2004. Now GOOGLE WILL NOT allow me to get to some sites

Posted

i uninstalled GOGGLE tonight because, I HATE GOOGLE for several reasons. BUT since the uninstall, they are blocking not sites but CONTENT. I do a search and the content is on lots of URLS. BUT GOOGLE INTERCEPTS THE SITE, HIJACKS Firefox AND SAYS: GOOGLE 404. That’s an error. The requested URL [inappropriate link] was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

i KNOW its a lie as the URL/SITE comes up, I SEE THE CONTENT then GOOGLE "KNOCKS IT DOWN AND SAYS: GOOGLE 404. That’s an error. The requested URL [inappropriate link] was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

BUT IT DID IN FACT "FIND" IT, I SAW IT FOR A BRIEF MOMENT.

ANYONE?

I try to "learn something everyday." I did today...i never knew in the last 82 years. I also used Firefox and BING.

You found my PM (Private Message) then ......

Just keep on learning young man (but not from that video .... )

The only "Bing" I like is Chandler Bing ("Friends") and Bing Crosby .....

When you type in the correct search term, you won't get that "Google 404 Robot" page - if you can't figure out what that correct search term is, let me know and I will send it to you in a private message, but not on this support forum.

interesting, I did not include anything except the "number in the error message. I have used the internet since it only had a 64 baud phone modem and never got a ERROR response from GOOGLE while using FIREFOX. Seems like it told you it could not find a site but NOT GOOGLE. BUT WITHIN about 10 min AFTER I uninstalled GOOGLE BROWSER this message has popped up lots since. "Why this forum got the NAME and included in the message is beyond me. Someone asked me to search for that title as they got strange results too, and when GOOGLE when crazy, it made me wonder why it "lied" to me when Firefox found it for a MOMENT THEN GOOGLE POPPED UP ITS MESSAGE. . I hate Google ever since they seem to intercept every HOP. Seems every HOP my browser take it seems GOOGLE intercepts it and dont remember anyone making them "Emperior" of the net.

I really don't see what the problem is ....

You typed in a search request; Google may have thought they found it for a split second (hence you may have seen a glimpse of that site), but the URL clearly wasn't correct, and that's when you get the "Google 404 Robot".

About that video number : I don't want to explain it here (not as long as that number is still mentioned).

Again : if you still need to find that site I can show you how to get there in a private message.

Why, how, does GOOGLE get involved, respond via |Firefox from PING SEARCH ENGINE.... [404 error.....

Is Microsoft involved because of BING? FIREFOX??

The "404 SHOULD HAVE been from the search engone--- BING.

SEE my curiosity? I still suspect GOOGLE somehow is Always SNOOPING, GETTING INVOLVED in about everything. Incepting HOPS, ..

I get the "yuck". But I have 55 years in computers, management, programming management, a Sun Unix Admin, operations and when I got my friends message of "strange" behavior I just had to pursue.

Still dont understand why a SEARCH for "a string of letters, WORD regardless of there meaning.. " would not be interrupted by a search engine with "did you mean? etc." I have no clue how a "number" is involved", why" IT found a URL, found a server, displayed a page.... etc.

Google read the "search string, did return a "video333333" and say "not found but did, lied about it... returned a "video3333" for that server, url...

And you say, sending a "video3333" to a search engine, it FIND AND DISPLAYS A PAGE OF CONTENT?

WEIRD.

I never seen this before.

Now am curious of what you found and saw and GOOGLE tried to "cover up"

Still dont understand why a SEARCH for "a string of letters, WORD regardless of there meaning.. " would not be interrupted by a search engine with "did you mean? etc." I have no clue how a "number" is involved", why" IT found a URL, found a server, displayed a page.... etc. Google read the "search string, did return a "video333333" and say "not found but did, lied about it... returned a "video3333" for that server, url... And you say, sending a "video3333" to a search engine, it FIND AND DISPLAYS A PAGE OF CONTENT? WEIRD. I never seen this before. Now am curious of what you found and saw and GOOGLE tried to "cover up"

PRIVATE MESSAGE? I rarely use this forum but have no idea about "private messaging" and the emails I got from you are "no reply" advise please.

At the top of this page, do you see a blue number on "Inbox"  ? If so : click on it .....

BUT am still curious if you know why.

To make absolutely sure, you could check what you have set to be your default search engine in :

3-bar menu => Options => Search

Nothing GOOGLE installed.

Your system details show that you have two Google extensions installed   ..... (Options => Add-ons => Extensions)

But those are not search-related (Google Translate).
