surfing the internet problems with multiple browsers

Could anyone explain why I am having trouble surfing the internet with both firefox and konqueror? Chromium seems to be the only browser that will work. I tried to create a new profile with firefox and that didn't work either. I can ping things just, I can download stuff with wget, I can ssh into servers. I don't understand what the problem is. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Re: surfing the internet problems with multiple browsers

What's the problem? Besides having trouble with browsing. Does it say something? Or only a white screen appears? Or?

What does it tell you when you run it from the terminal?

I don't get any error messages. I also checked the man pages for a verbose option and there is not a verbose option.

Re: surfing the internet problems with multiple browsers

Could it be ipv6. Seems to me, (vague memory, and this could have nothing to do with your problem), that some folks were having trouble with firefox, and it turned out to be fixable by disabling ipv6 in firefox. Go to about:config, search for ipv6 and set it to disabled.

Once again, this is just a guess, based on a very vague memory.

Re: surfing the internet problems with multiple browsers

Can you ping (from the command line) a site (for example www.redhat.com) that does not work in Koqueror or Firefox?

Disable ipv6 in Firefox:
about:config

And set: network.dns.disableIPv6 to TRUE

If this fixes Firefox, you have some issue with ipv6 to investigate.

----

Also post the version of al network manager packages (are you using it?)

When did it start to happen?

Re: surfing the internet problems with multiple browsers

Hmm, where are you? If you are at work and behind a proxy server with an automatic proxy configuration setup, then some browsers will be able to figure it out and others not.

Yes you are right .

It seems the newest version of Firefox handles IPv6 differently. My problem was with IPv6. After following these instructions I got Firefox working again.

IPv6

Firefox supports http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPv6 IPv6 by default, which may cause connection problems on certain systems. To disable IPv6 in Firefox:
aboutconfig
In the Filter field, type network.dns.disableIPv6
In the list of preferences, double-click pref network.dns.disableIPv6 to change its value from pref false to pref true.

Koqueror also has the same problem. I will do a little googleing on how disable IPv6 in Koqueror.

How do I check what version network manager I am using? On Friday. The day after I updated firefox and started traveling .

Re: surfing the internet problems with multiple browsers

rpm -q NetworkManager should give you the version.

Re: surfing the internet problems with multiple browsers

I was looking at this file.
Code:
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-BBB
Would this line have some effect?
Code:
IPV4_FAILURE_FATAL=yes
This file mentioned the above file. Then I noticed the failure thing.
Code:
/var/log/messages
