Itermittent failure of firefox/google web browser

Asked by curiouser

About 1 in 3 Karmic boot ups result in failure of the google web browser. After loading the Google web browser if I request a URL The following message appears " The requested URL cannot be retrieved - access denied". Rebooting the machine works sometimes, others it does not. Sometimes the problem just goes away. Never seen anything like it! I am the only person on the machine and am listed as the administrator. I am not part of a network.

Are you using a web proxy or just a direct connection.

Weird, if you close the browser after an access denied message and relaunch, is it the same?

Sometimes I get the same message back, other times it clears and works as it should.
