    Hi all
    I know it is not a direct mac problem BUT
    Since I updated to firefox 29.0 I can't search the net anymore!
    All my bookmarks are working fine, thats why I can go to the mac forum. If I want to post anything on the net, find a site, I always get the same message "can't establish connection to the server"
    If I serch with bing or yahoo I can't go over the point where I need to install a windows aplication "flash pro"
    This is frustrating as I can't even go on the net for help!!!
    Did delete firefox already and reinstalled it thru Safari.
    please somebody gimmi an idea what to do!!

    I've possibly had something similar, one website (that I use frequently) stopped working with the same error.
    Nothing seemed to fix it - clearing cache, cookies, chnage DNS, reboot Mac etc. That was most of yesterday. Today its working again. No idea what happened.
