no but you might try disabling ipv6 in Firefox which *might* be causing
DNS lookup timeouts.

Start Firefox
type 'about:config' in address bar and press 'Enter'
agree to the warning
locate the following setting and double click it to change the value
from false to true
network.dns.disable.IPv6

It should be 'bold' indicating that it is changed from default value

Try using Firefox
