Odd web browser behavior

5 posts in this topic

I am having the strangest issues with waterfox now, almost every time I click on a link I am almost instantly greeted with the message that firefox can not locate server x, but after 2 or 3 reloads I am able to connect just fine. This only seems to occur with embedded links, bookmarked and RSS links seem to open just fine. I have cleared the cache and cookies as part of the troubleshooting process. What could be causing this?

DNS issues?

Have you tried another browser?

I have not tried any other browser and have the router configured to use OpenDNS, which I have never had any issues with before, so I am not sure where the issue is.

just because you have never had issues with it before does not mean you don't look at it. What you describe sounds like a dns problem, could be with the dns resolve in the browser sure. Do you have this problem with other browsers - if so then its your dns.

Since your your using your route as dns forwarder, maybe its acting up - try rebooting it. Or verify you have fast responses from opendns, do a query with nslookup or dig on one of your boxes directly to opendns servers.

I stopped using OpenDNS because sites started not resolving, was left with an error of some sort iirc
