    Hey,

    Have you tried a different browser?

    Do you have any plug-ins/extensions installed that might be interfering? If so, try starting FF in safe mode.

    Can you list a few sites that are exhibiting the problem?

    For these sites, can you properly resolve the domain names in a terminal? e.g.:
    Code:
    ping www.google.com
    nslookup www.google.com
    host www.google.com

    Google is opening , but when i am opening say ten best linux softwares or some other search on any keywords:
    it shows the list now i do->right click open in new tab -> it opens first link then does not open the third one and say i open 6 links 2 open up but four dont. same with opera same thing, searches in google or other its skipping around 50 % links says not found.

    I installe my wireless using : yum install broadcom-wl command and i think my broadcom is Broadcom :43xx series, is it right choice or not.

    I am fed up thinking to uninstall it then install Linux mint or ubuntu(but its crashes a lot of application that i install it).


    Thanks.

    it there any problem in firefox,
    I don't think so. I'm using FireFox-12.0 with Fedora-17 . I haven't seen that issue so far.

    It sounds more like flaky internet connectivity than a Firefox issue. How are you connecting to the internet?
