At various times, I'm browsing and type a new address into the address, ie: I
type in: '' and it does not load. 

What I type is in the address bar, but.. when I press ENTER the status bar at
the bottom of the page changes, (really fast) like it is connecting to the site.
and i see "Document: Done...."

Right this vary instant it is having a problem with

I *think* this is a problem when DNS gets flaky but I have no 
means by which to force a DNS failure {they don't let me mess with with stuff at
a company wide level :->)

If I use another machine (sharp zarus linux wireless interface)- I get 'repeated
attempts failed to load this page completely' 

I get no error message what so ever in mozilla.

If there is an error - I should at least get a message shouldn't I?

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. visit a web page
2. make I think dns lookups for that web site fail
3. try to visit that web site again.

Actual Results:  no error messages no nothing.

Expected Results:  it should have worked

My DNS assumption is probably erronious, it could well be that the remote server
is down in some way or another. I just cannot tell.
Do you use a proxy server (like junkbuster) ?

Q: Do you use a proxy server (like junkbuster) ?

A: No never did.

   I know for a fact there is no transparent proxies, caches
   etc, between me and the world. Other then the 'firewalls'

   There is an extensive firewall between me and the world.
   I've seen described as "DMZ" style. I know in general how
   it is configured, not details.

   Internet Connection is via two T1s. Primary is ALTER.NET
   and backup/secondary is BROADWING. Our DNS servers are
   slaved from ALTER.NET

   Firewall 1 - (live on the internet) is a cisco with
   thier firewall package and checkpoint firewall/vpn 
   package which. Those firewalls do both NAT and PAT

   There are a number of "dmz" computers, one each for 
   ftp, www, mail, etc. One service - One Machine.

   Firewall 2 - behind the cisco - is a Linux based 
   ip-chains, and ip-masquirade (spelling?) firewall 
   which also does NAT and PAT. 

   This machine (firewall-2) routes between our internal 
   network and the DMZ.

   I'm behind firewall 2.

I'm not sure if both firewalls do nat/pat - but I do know
we run things on non-standard ports internally to confuse
a hackmaster trying to get into our systems.

Our internal network is about 60 Sun Sparcs, 25 Linux boxes
and 150+ PCs.
