the problem is ipv6


Your computer tries to use ipv6 before it uses IPv4, so is first times-out the ipv6 tcp/ip request.

The solution;
1. get an ipv6 connection to the internet
2. or turn-off all ipv6 support.
3. Remove ipv6 modules from the tcp/ip stack rmmod ipv6 modules
4. Look and search in navigation bar by typing the url about:config and/or edit the user.js/default.js
5. Search on www gigablast com query=ipv6 firedox mozilla

With regards
OpenBSD

I'm on my Debian computer right now. It's a fresh install and everything is working great, internet browsing is perfect and ping works great. As soon as I restart though..... things are going to be back to the way they were. I will have that skippy slow internet browsing. this is what my ifconfig looks like at the moment

Quote:
debian:/home/ben# ifconfig

and my dns server is 192.168.0.1 so that rules out resolv.conf right?

modifying about:config
1. write 'about:config' into a mozilla firefox window
2. right-click on the line starting with 'network.dns.disableIPv6' and modify it to 'true'

-I typed about:config in Mozilla and changed the network.dns.disableIPv6 value to true
-I modified alias net-pf-10 ipv6 to read net-pf-10 off in /etc/modprobe.d/aliases
-I created the value alias ipv6 off in /etc/modprobe.d/aliases
-I modified #alias net-pf-10 off to read alias net-pf-10 off in /etc/modules.conf
-I modified #alias net-pf-10 off to alias net-pf-10 off in /etc/modutils/aliases
-I typed su and typed update-modules

I restarted after doing the above. Nothing has changed, I'm still getting the terrible computer + tele-lag when I'm running an application that uses the Internet

There is nothing connected to the USB ports
Windows XP - but I did a complete reformat of the harddrive when I was installing Debian 3.1 Sarge


I haven't installed a driver manually, the Debian Install 3.1 Sarge didn't prompt me and downloaded the apt-get packages itself. The driver in Kernel 2.2.x was "rtl18139" The driver in Kernel 2.4.x was "8139too". Since I'm on Kernel 2.6.x and the driver is "8139too" - would that be a problem maybe?

EDIT
If you google: "8129too" there are a lot of interesting results with people having issues with the driver.

EDIT-2
Problem fixed! I had to disable ACPI in the Grub Bootloader.
