vmware, ubuntu guest, firefox slow URL resolution
I have a WinXP host with ubuntu running in vmware as a guest. The network configuration is currently running through NAT (as required by my hotel room). nslookup resolves addresses very quickly, however, when I attempt to use firefox within the ubuntu 5.0.10 guest, the URL's resolve and download data extremely slowly. Oddly enough, apt-get is able to download data at reasonable rates given my hotel highspeed.
Any ideas why firefox, and perhaps only firefox, is downloading slowly on this configuration?
