Greetins, There are times when I can not use google to search things, it kept telling me "Server Not Found". Although accessing the web directly worked. I tried to googling on another browser, and it worked just fine. Any idea why/what might cause this? I never touch firewall settings so everything should be on default settings. Thank you

You can check the connection settings.

  • Settings -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings

If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet then try to select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.

See "Firefox connection settings":
