Installed Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04. Firfeox will not access internet. Works fine in 9.04
Every time Firefox opened
Solved! Go to Solution.
It turned out in my case to be an IPv6 issue.
all I had to do was add these lines
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1
If you have problems editing the file
simply open Nautilus as root
btw: I commented out the notes but this site would not allow me to post the pound sign
Hi - which exact problem do you have connecting? Is Ubuntu recognizing your network at all?
If you aren't sure if Ubuntu is connected at all, try running the Ubuntu Update utility in System->Administration. If Ubuntu won't connect at all, you will need to troubleshoot your network connection. If this works, and Firefox doesn't, then you need to check proxy and offline-mode setting in Firefox. To do this:
Did this - no change I am afraid. Also checked the 'ping' option - that gave 100% success.
I only get this problem with Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04 - as I said before, Ubuntu 9.04 is perfect in this respect- why is the diffrence?
Was "No Proxy" selected? And does going to http://22.214.171.124 work?
If you're still getting connection errors, paste me the output of these commands:
Hi I have the same problem, and yes it works with ip address you gave however, it does not access the same with google.com typed in the address bar
I've had this issue before. Changing the settings to "No Proxy" worked once, but it hasn't worked so far. It will, however, be able to go to the ubuntu website and xkcd.
Same problem. ping works, firefox and email (thunderbird) do not. I can access google using the numerical ip address. This sounds like a dns issue. How do we fix this?
Same problem. My firefox and thunderbird work only under sudo. I have two identical machines, one has ubuntu 10.04 the other ubuntu 10.04 + win7. The problem appears in the second. Both has clean ubuntus installations, moreover, the ./mozilla and ./thunderbird folders in my user directory come from ubuntu 9.10 (they were backed up and copied by hand in the new 10.04). All other connections work fine (synaptic, ping ...)
I have a very similar problem. All was working perfectly in Ubuntu 9.04 but with 9.10 and 10.04
Google Chrome and Opera conenct with no problem at all. By making *no* changes to my system, Firefox and Thunderbird little by little start working again and within 2 - 8 hours return to normal
This I consider a major problem!
