Strange, strange problem with google, lynx and brltty on one linux machine

Thanks; I'll try all of those. But what is strange is that it works fine if I do it as root. This kind of leads me to believe it has something to do with permissions or something like that but why only with google? I cam even su into root and do it. I can, in fact, use sudo and get it to work. So I think that pretty much eliminates it being the cable or the serial port being dammaged or a brltty problem. But I can't imagine what problem could only affect google; maybe there are other sites that would also do this but I can't think of any. Unfortunately, i only have one linux machine right now; I have fink and macports on my Mac but that wouldn't work for comparison purposes.


May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable to You, Lord,
my rock and my Redeemer.
(Psalm 19:14 HCSB)
