Seen on the pkgsrc-users@ mailing list: a way to dramatically speed up FireFox.
Does anyone else notice the continuing quirkiness of Firefox’s resolver code, and have a good understanding of why it behaves as it does? It feels like I’m always getting into situations where one failing lookup blocks others from completing and a timeout has to elapse before things work again.
You sure it’s not one of your ISP’s DNS servers having the issue? The only way I’ve ever encountered something like this in years was from one misbehaving DNS server out of a pair.
actually its mainly to do with the fact that when you install and uninstall addons, the writers, most of em, are lazy and mess up firefox for you
