There has been a great deal of discussion about this problem but never with any resourceful results.
The common problem shared by myself and a few others with SuSe 9.0 + is that we use Qwest/Actiontec DSL Gateway boxes and for some reason we have a reoccurring problem with either constant timeouts on sites such as google, or odd instances such as I had with this site pertaining to a 'phantom' display that when loaded only shows a blank white page with missing images. It usually hangs at the point when it is 'connecting' to the google ad service.
Another common denominator, is that it seems that if a site has redirect links, ad links, or anything that may cause a slight delay, the browser (no matter if you use Mozilla, Konq, Firefox..etc..) times out.
There were a couple of solutions to this in earlier versions of SuSe, however for the most part, after trying both methods, they yielded no positive results.
I have been quite depressed that I have for the good part of the day had to use XP to visit web sites in general because of this problem with SuSe.
If there is anybody with a solution, you would not only be helping myself, but probably many others that are in the same situation.
A thanks in advance is in order, and hopefully I can get SuSe back to its full potential.
The only reason that I was even able to post this message, is that I switched to windowmanager, and was lucky enough to have a stored link cached.
