One thing that you can try to access your browser is check for any browser reset options. It would get you off all the cache, history, download data, plus any malicious cookies or content that is preventing you to run google searches. Let me know if it helps! You may also try deleting the browser and reinstalling it to check if resolves the issue.
@leocg Thanks! I added User-Agent-Switcher. Fumbling and bumbling around, I got to the meaty part of the site using Opera. But I still wonder why sites, at least newer sites block Opera? I recall earlier versions of Opera could spoof by directly identifying as another browser or some other level of id. I guess I will never know.
