Firefox hangs when loading any google search and other browsers work

more options

Hi there.

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 on a Lenovo Thinkpad A485, and Firefox has suddenly stopped loading search results. When I launch the browser I am presented with its home page but when I perform a search it just hangs in a loading state, and if I try searching something else it just keeps displaying the URL of the original search. I also use Chromium and that's still working fine.

I've tried reinstallation and everything from this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can to no avail.

Any thoughts?

Hi everyone.

Firefox is magically back online!

I didn't have time to troubleshoot yesterday, but when I checked this afternoon it was working normally again.

I still don't know what the problem was, but it's gone now.

I appreciate the input!

The original question probably should be removed ***

Did you use Synaptic to install Firefox?

Do you get errors when you start Firefox from the terminal?
