Haven't used Tor in awhile. While searching first topically, I was timing out; then I got an error saying that Firefox was unable to find the (or connect to) the server for ... I finally tried Amazon, still no results. The search bar indicates something about Google and Disconnect.me; in the past, I thought that Tor was its own browser and from what I can see, Disconnect me is a VPN, of which I have one already. (I've turned it on and then off while trying to search.)

I don't understand what is happening and if something can be changed; would appreciate suggestions, guidance.

    Thank you for the information. So, the reason I could not access anything had zero to do with the browser or the search engine. It is helpful to rule that out. – Soulfulpsy Jul 6 '15 at 19:26
  • Can you provide some information how you configured your browser or do you use Tor Browser (which version)? – Jens Kubieziel Jul 7 '15 at 6:39
