I've installed Ubuntu few hours ago, and I'm getting quite silly problem.
When I use firefox and put in any website, I get, "The connection was refused when attempting to contact google.com (any website) Every other thing seems to be fine, I can ping hosts, update and download stuff using wget. Router logs doesn't show any traces of connection refusal. Help!

Is it just firefox, or all browsers?

All I have, but not all that are. I tried links and lynx and I'm getting the same thing. I couldn't try Opera, because Opera.com, as far as I know, doesn't provide direct links for browser download.

Ok, so you have an internet connection, but http traffic isn't getting through.

Do you have an iptables script running?

yeah, I have an internet connection. I'm on Ubuntu now. I realized that it isn't that http traffic doesn't go at all, (I can visit pf now) but for example I go on google, and it's ok. I close firefox, open again and again go on google, and I receive connection refused. So it's sort of crazy situation where I can visit some websites and then cannot, and then can again... I don't use router firewall and I'm without working iptables now.

ok, it works. I changed dns servers in resolv.conf on the dns's provided by ISP.

heh, that was my guess, but you were fast enough...
and you can download opera directly from their site...
