Trouble opening web pages in both Safari and Firefox

This is the error that comes up on seemingly random pages:
Server not found

Firefox can't find the server at

* Check the address for typing errors such as instead of

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
