A site loads normally then displays a screen says: Oops! This page appears broken. DNS Error - Server cannot be found. This happens repeatedly.
While reading posts on Xanga and many news sites, I am suddenly transferred to a screen that says Oops! This page appears broken. DNS Error - Server cannot be found.
This problem began about a month ago and has made it impossible for me to use sites have been going to for years.
I read that prefetch may be the problem, so turned it off. That didn't help.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
Your above posted system details show outdated plugin(s) with known security and stability risks.

Update the Java plugin to the latest version.

Update the Flash plugin to the latest version.
Update the Adobe Reader plugin to the latest version.
Thank you for the advice about the plug-ins. I can not proudly claim they are all up to date. Unfortunately, the updates appear to have no impact on the problem. I tried reading several blogs I follow on Xanga this morning and every single time I get past the first paragraph, I kicked off into the error screen.
You can check the connection settings: Tools > Options > Advanced : Network : Connection
If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then select No Proxy
Good thought, cor-el. My browser is already set to NO PROXY.
