Does opera or Konqueror do that? I haven't seen this problem in FF on
my Fedora boxes.
Well I am not conversant with Konqueror, but I tried it.
The first few tries were very slow, but now it takes only
a few seconds -- still, not as fast as Firefox. Repetition
does not slow Konqueror, but them I don't know how to get
it to delete its data.
The most interesting finding is this. After having been away
from the box for a few hours, I tried Konqueror a few times
as described above. I then tried Firefox. It was
instantaneous on the first try. On subsequent tries it was
very slow, as previously described. In other words, it
seems that the DNS queries of Konqueror do not interact
with those of Firefox.
FWIW, I also tried "dig www.google.com"
;. Repeated digs
all respond immediately.
In summery, it appears at this time that the repeated DNS
problem (if it is really that) is isolated to Firefox.
Thanks for your thoughts.
