When I search something on google, the tab freezes there are no result. This doesn't happen all the time, usually 80% of the time. I can open a new tab and surf the web on that. This has never happened to me. It just started thursday night. I am using firefox. Someone suggested to use another web browser so I used chrome/Chromium but the same thing happened on google and this time, the whole thing froze not just the tab. Any other website I use like youtube,Quora works fine. I cleaned up all the history, cookies, temporary internet files, everything.

OS used :Ubuntu 14.04

Something like this

please help

  • This isn't necessarily something related to Ubuntu. Its Google stuff. askubuntu.com/help/dont-ask – KhoPhi Nov 2 '15 at 19:07
  • How about Google from other location, like Canada or UK ? Do those sites work ? – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Nov 3 '15 at 13:03
  • looks like you need to clear you dns cache on your DNS server. – Neil Nov 3 '15 at 19:50

Turn off the instant search option on Google. There are a few possibilities why it isn't working, and they are covered on Google support here: https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/186645?hl=en
