google issues

Postby heiowge » Mon Jul 22, 2013 8:44 am

I'm not sure if this is just me or my laptop, Firefox or Google, or whatever, but I'm having problems.

I go to google search. I type a few characters, then it stops and deletes them. I have to then start again.

I click on the first page, don't like what I get and click the back arrow. The page doesn't load. I click it again and go back another stage, then hit the forward arrow and it shows the search results again. Sometimes that blanks again.

Oh, and the advanced image search won't let me set the picture dimensions.

I'm hearing about a google redirect virus. Could it be a borked firefox?

Oh, and I'm not having the same issues anywhere else. :?

Have you tried a different browser? Or Firefox as a different user? You could also try Firefox in safe mode.
