View Full Version : [ubuntu] Browser slow

November 1st, 2009, 02:52 PM
fresh 9.10 install.

i notice that the firefox takes 2-3 seconds to do "look up ..address.." every time I click on something or open a new link. Almost like something wrong with my ISP's DNS is down or something. This never happened with 9.04. This makes browsing internet a lot slower than before.

Anyone notice that?

(thanks for the following post)

disable ipv6 fixed it:

1. type about:config in address
2. filter by ipv6
3. find network.dns.disableIPv6, toggle it to be true.

restart and fast like light

The previous poster is probably right.
