hi, i think the problem was with my internet connection and not with ubuntu, browsing through firefox is as good as in winxp.

But i still donīt understand, why plugins are not being installed in firefox and also the downloading through synaptic manager is slow.

Can you please explain the plugins? Which are those that you want to install? If you need Flash player, get it from adobe site. There are lot of options available and most probably even debian package is available.
