Continuing to research this and while googling - using Firefox since that does not work either for me right now - I found some mention of a temporary fix of changing proxy settings. I went to the Advanced/proxy settings in my chromium and get an error message:


When running Chromium under a supported desktop environment, the system proxy settings will be used. However, either your system is not supported or there was a problem launching your system configuration.

But you can still configure via the command line. Please see |man chromium-browser| for more information on flags and environment variables.


Very weird. I have not used a proxy on this computer but this might be the reason for my problem? Anyone else have had similar problem?
