Since about 3 days ago, Sept 13 2016, I have been unable to access any google web site on my Windows 10 PC using Firefox or Chrome. I can get everywhere else, but for google sites I get the message, "Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at xxxx.google.com." I've tried all the troubleshooting steps here as well as on google, and have made no progress. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I gave up and finally restored to a previous set point, then reinstalled Windows updates. I also had to uninstall Chrome and re-install it. All seems fine now. Must have been a glitch with the update. Thanks for your time and advice.

Are you trying to reach http://xxxx.google.com/ or google.com ?

google.com, mail.google.com, maps.google.com, news.google.com, www.google.com/android/devicemanager.... anything with google in the url doesn't want to load.

Remove History For One Site Open the History Manager <Control><Shift> H. In the search bar, enter the name of the site. Right click on one of the listings and select Forget About This Site. This should remove all information, including any passwords / settings.

No change. I had already erased all history/cookies/passwords, but this still had no effect.

You did use Forget About This Site, yes?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?

I did use forget about this site. I started in safe mode and still cannot access google-named sites.

I've called for more help.

Start your Computer in safe mode with networking. Then start Firefox. Try Safe websites. Is the problem still there?
