I see a comcast.net in your address, which probably means this is the
problem:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=459756

It is random, but because you use firefox more, you see it more there.

I got rid of the problem by running named as a local dns cache and
starting it with the -4 option so it only does IPv4 requests.
