google.com won't load
The google search bar on the homepage doesn't work, just does an infinite load, the same with google.com. The extensions I have are AVG Online Security, Malwarebytes, and AVG Anti-Tracking. The version is the latest version 116.0.1

Hello! It looks like you're having trouble with Google not loading properly in Firefox. Don't worry, we can get this sorted out. The issue you're experiencing might be due to a conflict with your browser extensions. To start, let's try disabling the AVG Online Security, Malwarebytes, and AVG Anti-Tracking extensions one by one, then refresh the page to see if Google loads correctly. If that solves the problem, you can enable the extensions one at a time to identify which one is causing the issue. Also, ensure you have the latest version of your extensions. If the problem persists, clearing your browser's cache and cookies could help. Give these steps a shot and let us know how it goes.
It didn't help any.
Please can you check for any further updates. We have recently released 116.0.2 that might help.
This support article should help:
Did that. Tried refreshing Firefox and it worked, until I closed Firefox and then opened it again, then it quit working again.
Tried a complete uninstall of Firefox using Revo Uninstaller which gets rid of leftover files and registry keys. Did a clean install of Firefox. The first time I opened it google worked. When I closed Firefox and reopened it, search quit working. I didn't change any of the default settings, just did a clean uninstall/install.
Still no help. Have you heard anything about avg anti-virus or anti-tracking causing problems? It doesn't with Chrome or Edge, but maybe Firefox doesn't like it?
You can check the connection settings.
- Settings -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings
If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet, select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the of the others do not work properly.
See "Firefox connection settings":
Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support to see if that has effect.
Apparently AVG Anti-track is the culprit. If I disable it, google.com loads. I guess it's because it changes the browser fingerprint periodically, I don't know.
Thank you for reporting back. It's odd that other sites aren't affected.
