    I have tried to go to UPS.com with firefox, safari & omniweb and I get an error on each one.

    But if I go over to my roommates computer with firefox it works just fine. This has been happening with more & more sites lately. And its driving me nuts.

    How do you fix this?

    this is what I get with firefox.

    From the command line, use nslookup to see what address you get for the URL (and make sure you don't have a proxy set up in Firefox.) See if you're getting the same issue with Safari, if not, look at loaded plug-ins, if you are, then suspect routing, netmasks, or blocking at a firewall/router/DSL service (Verizon does some blocking stuff by default that's really ugly to get rid of.)

    ups.com works fine on my MBP but this is what I got from the nslookup on the iMac that's acting up with all the browsers.

    That looks valid. I'd compare addresses/netmasks and routes between the two Macs (ifconfig and netstat -nr,) and I'd also see if whatever's doing NAT (router, cable modem...) is set up right for the correct number of systems.
