[Solved] I just updated Firefox to the 18.0 version. Upon doing a Google search it briefly flashs the findings but then goes blank.


This did not happen before I upgraded and does not happen with either Chrome or IE. I am using Windows 7 operating system.

UPDATE: The problem seems to have resolved itself once I opened Firefox this morning.
