Internet connection is unstable
Hi, For a week now my Firefox internet connection has been unstable. Typically after opening a new tab I need to click the "Try again" button on the "Server not found"-page several times (5-10) to finally create a connection.
I am running Firefox 39.0 on Win XP Pro SP3. Firewall settings look ok. Browsing and virus protection is by F-Secure (up-to-date). Unfortunately the problem appears not to be affecting Firefox alone (Chrome and Outlook email access are similarly unstable).
I am using a shared wifi connection via a Windowsphone, and can connect with the phone's browser without issues (so I don't think the problem is ISP related).
I performed a full virus scan without issues reported.
Any advice would be welcome. Thanks!
I seemed to have found a solution by modifying the DNS server definitions. I unchecked Obtain DNS server addresses automatically and specified the preferred and alternate DNS server addresses (used 8 8 8 8 and 8 8 4 4 respectively).Funda le mpendulo ngokuhambisana nalesi sihloko 👍 0

Contact your ISP and have them test your service.
Unplug your modem(s) for a 10 count, then restore to re-boot it.
Separate Issue; Your System Details shows;
Shockwave Flash 18.0 r0
Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 18.104.22.168
Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 22.214.171.124
Having more than one version of a program may cause issues. You must remove the older programs. Then get the current full installer.
Then reinstall the latest version.
Flash Player Version 126.96.36.199

Thanks! Unfortunately the problem remains after re-installing Flash Player and Shockwave. Also, I don't think it is ISP related since my mobile data connection works fine (same connection that I am sharing from my laptop). And ISP has not reported problems in my area.
