Using Ubuntu 16.04.2 in VMWare.
I installed Ubuntu a few days ago in a VMWare without any problems. I used Firefox to download STS and Intelij, everything worked.
Today I turn on the virtual machine and Firefox will not load any pages. It just doesn't do anything. Firefox loads but when I type 'google.com' or something in the search bar nothing happens. It doesn't crash, it doesn't try to load anything (no progress bar etc). I also uninstalled Firefox, rebooted (windows habit) and reinstalled it but the result is the same.
So I installed Chromium from the Ubuntu software package manager and it works perfectly.
I am a Linux/Ubuntu noob but it seems to me that this is not normal behaviour. If someone has had the same problem or could help it would be much appreciated :).
