Hi all.
I have been trying for several day to get firefox to work on a newly
installed Debian Stretch system. It Seems that Firefox can't find a DNS
server. I am having the same problem with apt-get update. None of my
mirrors can be reached. Ping works just fine. I can't even reach the
other computers on my home network if I use their names. IP addresses
work OK. I have installed resolvconf and followed several installation
instructions to no avail. The name servers for my router
( both google servers at and are listed
in the correct file (can't remember which one). This system worked fine
when first installed. I installed qemu-kvm on the system and I think in
broke things.I've run out of ideas.

Please help

An addition is necessary here. The problem started when I installed the qemu-kvm virtual machine. Now the Kubuntu system - the guest - network access works fine. But the host machine can't find the DNS servers. This makes no sense.
