Previously, I used my internal LAN via Windows 7 to browse NCBI and this worked.

After I upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04, most of the websites opens fine except NCBI; when I try it always shows "problem with download web page" and in the middle of the page it shows "Server not found".

My major is biology and I use this site a lot but I am new at Ubuntu.

Could anyone give me some tips about how to fix this problem?

  • Seems to work for me on 14.04. What web browser are you using? Did you install any plug-ins? Does it work now? (it could have been a problem at the web site itself...) – Fabby Dec 3 '14 at 1:15
