Windows 7: pages not found - but exist. show after reload

pages not found - but exist. show after reload

Not sure if I chose the right board, if noot please move the thread accordingly.

I just set up my newly built x64 Win7 Professional.
During browsing with firefox I am experiencing that pages are not found that exist. after reloading the pages show up, but often not on the 1st attempt.
I am using the newest firefox release.

I am utilizing an SSD for the first time - is it maybe to fast fo my internet connection or something weird like that?

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I have experienced the same issue in IE8, IE9, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Maxthon, Element, Epic, Slim, Comodo, Wyzo etc.

I figured it happens when my ping drops and my speed is lower than usual.

The thing is that this would mean the problem is my internet connection.
But I didn't experience this with the old desktop, nor do I experience this with one of the other computers using the same connection. Just thirs new build shows this pattern!

Windows 7 32 bit

Not sure if it will help but you could try an Admin command prompt and enter
ipconfig /flushdns

Also use CCleaner to periodically clear browser caches and cookies.

Win7 & Win8 64bit


Have you tried resetting your Firefox to the default setting? Uninstall Firefox then reinstall again?

You might want to check your browser if it's using any Proxy Settings, remove it if there's one setup.

Have you tried this on both wired or wireless issue?

Also, restart your computer, Tap F8 and select Safe Mode with Networking, see if your issue persist.

Please let us know.
