    I discovered my problem occurred when I use IPVanish for VPN services. 

    I host a couple of web sites on a computer I keep in the back bedroom of my house, and earlier this year I became unable to see my own sites when accessed from my own LAN.  (As chance would have it, this problem arose just a couple of days after Canada started supplying arms to Ukraine; which made me wonder if Canadian web hosts had become targets of disgruntled people.)  The work around was to run a VPN connection so my home computer was appearing to access my local web server from from Denver or Seattle.

    I appreciated hearing that Google search was working OK for you.  That was the tip-off that there was something going on in my own local configuration.  And this eventually led me to a solution:  turn off IPVanish when I want to access NavList.  Turn it back on when I want to edit/access either of the web sites I host from my home server.
