I am unable to open some website in Ubuntu while those websites are perfectly loading on windows. Websites I am unable to load are :- 1) omgubuntu.co.uk 2) deviantart.com 3) yahooanswers.com

I have already tried changing my DNS to google DNS but still the problem persists. Firefox and Chrome both are unable to load the websites.

what exactly happens when you try to open them, does it throw any error message, if yes, edit your question with error message. –  VRU Jan 8 '13 at 5:30
Can you access those sites if you turn off all extensions in your browsers? Sometimes, blocking scripts could have unpredictable results. –  user25656 Jan 8 '13 at 5:42
Also, please look at the column on the right hand side of this same page. You'll see a lot of Related questions. And please edit your question to mention how you connect to the internet with details of your ISP, router/modem and so on. Are you using the same set-up for both operating systems? Is your install Wubi or a proper dual-boot? –  user25656 Jan 8 '13 at 5:46
No, I am unable to load load the websites with extensions disabled. –  Dhawal Agarwal Jan 8 '13 at 5:47
