Some websites work, but some don't, on all browsers I use (chrome, safari, firefox). I get a "The webpage at ___ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address." It happens for facebook, yahoo, google, youtube, bing, etc. Twitter, Tumblr, Buzzfeed, Apple (obviously) all work fine. My MacBook pro is from early 2008 and I'm using Mac OS X Version 10.5.8. It's not an internet modem or wireless router problem, as I've already done customer service troubleshooting with both.

    You can try putting these numbers into System Preferences > Network > Configure > TCP/IP > DNS Servers



    These are the numbers for the OpenDNS service. This changes the service that your computer uses to look up real computer number addresses from the words you type into a URL bar.


    I still use earlier browsers with OSX 10.4 and don't see any such messages.
