The girlfriend's computer is giving me a headache.
It's a relatively new computer, less than a year old, Windows 7. She connects over wi-fi to Uverse. She uses Firefox, the latest version and has the AdBlock Plus plugin. She complained that her computer was slow, so I took a look. Firefox starts up fast enough and loads Google as her homepage. Trying to search for something is painfully slow. Bing, Yahoo and other sites load quickly.
I can ping google.com. Netstat shows me connections to Google servers, but pages never finish. When she tries to sign in, the image on the bottom left of the Google login form never loads.
I disabled AdBlock, but that doesn't help.
I opened up IE and it loads Google pages with no problem. I installed Chrome and it works fine too. It's just Firefox and Google.
Right now she's using Chrome and giving me dirty looks for not being able to fix her computer. Can anyone help?
