Sorry, we can't find "http://www...Please check the spelling of the web address. But it's doing this way too often. What's going on?

Posted

Most pages are loading fine. But way too often I get this message:

Sorry, we can't find "http://www.fill-in-website-name-here". Please check the spelling of the web address.

It also says on the bottom of the page this:

To disable the URL Error Redirection, go to the option page of your toolbar.

Which I can't find anyways though I doubt that's my problem. I have another computer that also has Firefox on it and that one is fine. Something is wrong with my Firefox on my Sony Laptop. Also on the trouble Firefox computer I'm able to load whatever page it doesn't want to load in Internet Explorer. I can be searching through a page fine and then go somewhere else on that page and it will start giving me this error message; even after being on that page for awhile.
