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?

Hardware: Host(1.7GHz w/ 2GB), Guest(1.7GHz w/ 256MB)
Software: Host(WinXP w/ VMWare 5.0), Guest(ubuntu 5.0.10 preview)
