I just installed Ubuntu on an external hard drive, and everything is working perfectly. Only Chrome won't load some sites (Google, Facebook, or Twitter), however it can load every single other site.

I have a proxy server configured, but Firefox has no problem connecting to these sites. Given the fact that the domain is not responsive on Chrome I can't send a bug report.

Anyone know of a fix?

what is the error you are getting when going to in chrome? – Rudolph Oct 16 '13 at 11:13
It tries to load for a long time, then I receive a normal "no internet connection" error, although I have other sites running on the side. It is a normal "maybe a proxy?" error (Yes, I have a proxy, but as said all other sites work), I believe its https sites that won't load. Thanks – Jo Colina Oct 18 '13 at 15:55
