This is going to need some clarification.

Exclamation Getting Browser to load item in search box

If I bring up Sea Monkey and click on any of the links on the page the browser takes me to that link.

If I open Firefox it will load.Should I put Google into the search box, I get a return of unable to connect, even though the browser is connected.

These are two examples it happens with all browsers.
