google search is slow in firefox but the download rate is okay at times


I have recently upgrade to new fibre optics technology. On my
linux box, I notice that browsing to any site is very slow.
The network download rate is in kb/s. But sometimes it can reach
6M/s once download of an GB iso file.

I believe the resolving the hosts name is a problem at times. It is happening
haphazardly. So I do not know how to handle this.

Once I did service network stop

but the connectivity is still going on at a fantasic rate.

Right now I have to wait to browse to a new site, even google.com.

I have done yum update nss\*

which solved a similar problem before but I have no luck this time.

Another thing, I can use chromium to surf the web slight more easily but not firefox since chromium seems to
tolerate slow connection..

The key to do a proper search on the internet. I just disable IPv6 and it seems okay now.
