Ok here's the situation.
About a few days ago, I seem to be having trouble with google and youtube when it comes to connecting to those websites. I am using firefox. Firefox has these tabs on the top. When I click on a link in google or youtube, it would normally show a grey circle and connecting... right beside it. The grey circle becomes a bluish green one, and then the page loads. Not this time. Instead, after saying connecting... the page stays the same as the previous one. Youtube videos would take a long time to load up while before it didn't seem to have the problem. This only happens when I click on a google or youtube search result link, or try to type in something within google search or youtube search, and tell it to search.
Does anyone here seem to have the same problem where other websites are fine, except for google and youtube?
I also have a suspicion that Flash may be the cause, but I don't really know since I also recently updated flash a few days ago.
