Firefox "page/server could not found" error

A few days ago, my laptop was broken. So I started using my dad's laptop. I think its a "netbook" but I'm not sure. I don't know the difference actually. Anyway... I use Mozilla Firefox, but while I was surfing, I realized that the connection working really slow. Most of the time, I write the website's link(like google.com, imdb.com...), hit enter but it says "Sunucu bulunamadı". I couldn't find the error in English, the translate must be something like; "page(or server) could not found". But after I press Ctrl+r it works, the website opens without a problem. So, I wonder why Firefox shows the error in most of the sites I try to enter.
Is it because of my connection really slow? But I don't think thats the problem, because when I was surfing on my laptop(the broken one), internet connection was pretty fast, I did not had any problems and I was using Firefox. I don't know whats wrong with this laptop. Could it be something about Firefox settings or something? Or is it a virus? I scanned with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and deleted 3 threats but its still not working properly. I did not scan with an anti-virus program yet, because I'm kinda confused with all those anti-something programs. I read that using two AV programs could cause problems. So, do I have to delete MBAM before I use AV program? Or MBAM is not AV program, so I don't have to uninstall it? Yes, I'm really confused.

By the way, I was checking some settings and I clicked Firefox/Tools/Options/Advanced/Network/Settings and I saw that "Use System Proxy Settings" was checked. I changed it to "No Proxy". I don't know if its important or not, but I think I have to write everything I did trying to solve the issue.

My other problems are, I suspect this laptop is being monitored and I forgot one of my hotmail addresses ID. But I guess I have to open separate topics for these?

I forgot to add that: The laptop(or notebook, or netbook..) is Windows 7 Home Premium.

Sorry for my English :) . If you don't understand anything, please tell me, I'll try to describe better.

Go to the Virus, Spyware, Malware Removal forum, read the first post and follow instructions.

Come back here once you get a clean bill of health if you still have problems.

what proxy settings were you using previously?

Have you tested by switching the proxy back on, does this resolve the problem to some extent?
