This problem is really weird. If I log into Google chrome, I can not use Google to search. And I cant log in to sites like this one and Stack Overflow with my Google account. The pages time out with "no response from server" type errors.
If I use a Windows PC on the same network it is fine, but in Ubuntu or Mint it fails. The problem started a month ago so I switched from Mint to Ubuntu with no improvement.
When I search Google (not logged into Chrome) the results pages are usable. But if I log into Chrome, I get a page of results that I can't click on unless I manually change the link. For example this link:
Fails to redirect, but if I open in a new tab and change the
google.com/ it will load.
DNS lookups are working fine using dig or nslookup to confirm.
Does any one have a clue as to what to try next? This a now a fresh install of Ubuntu 13.10, but had the exact same problem on Mint and a Windows PC works fine (how I am logged in now).
