slow DNS resolution in mozilla & firefox

Posted 01-16-2006 at 11:20 AM by tw001_tw

After suffering for weeks on a clean install of slackware 10.2 - I had terriblly slow DNS resolution times.
Ranging from 10 seconds, to what seemed forever.

I found a nice solution here at LQ.

Turn off IP6:
Open up Mozilla or Firefox and type in 'about:config' in the address bar
Scroll down to "network.dns.disableIPv6", it's defaulted to a value of false
Double-click on that line and change it to "true"
Close your browser, launch it again and it should work.

(I take no credit for this solution
I even copy/pasted the answer (I did clean it up and simplify it though).)
Original solution was given by: chiquitomuir
