On Windows 7 (oldish) desktop, using Chrome version 41.0.2272.101
if I type a search term into the address and press enter, all I get is:
This webpage is not available
clicking on the details reveals that an error code ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILE
If however, i ADD "https://
" at the beginning of the URL, then Chrome displays the results.
I have fiddled wiith settings of chrome and of my google account yet I cannot find a solution.
