Slow response from browser


My browser (Firefox) is really slow at responding to page request on load up. E.g. I go to and it takes ages to load the page. In fact it times out most times. After that initial time out things go pretty well for a while.

I go to the prompt and do ping and the response is really fast.

Any ideas of where I should be looking to see whats going on?

I am picking that the firefox settings are wrong since I when I use the Konquer browser things are fine.

Maybe you should look at proxy-settings in your browser?
