why dont [some] websites load? (slack)

never had this problem with any distro but slack (10.*), im using kde at the moment.

in konqueror, some web pages dont load and give this error: (well, an html page used by konqueror as an error message, it seems)
An error occurred while loading

Timeout on server
Connection was to at port 80
and '' doesnt load in konqueror.. but '' loads. however, ''and '' both load.
in mozilla '' loads.. google doesnt

in konqueror, works almost perfectly, it seems.. however, in mozilla, the main page i think fully loads, but say i click 'forums', it begins to load like 20% of the top, or so, and says its still loading but stays there for minutes and i havent seen it fully load.

this same problem happened to me in slack 10.0.. which is the sole reason i downloaded, burned, installed, and configured slack 10.1.. to see this same problem?

no clue what the deal is here.. i will be trying to download the firefox package to install with 'installpkg' tool, well see how that goes.. but i installed firefox on slack 10.0 after having this initial problem and that didnt solve it. i also tried running it as root, thinking for some odd reason it was maybe trying to write a temp file somewhere where it didnt have access, but no help.

any help appreciated.

i forgot to mention i can ping all these sites fine

i tried using the direct ip addresses to these sites with no luck either, +/- :80 (with without the ":80")

This sounds like a DNS issue, but the fact that you had the issue even with IPs, it might not be.

Check /etc/resolv.conf, let us know what you have in this file.
