When I try to resolv a hostname 50% of the tries or more uses along time to resolv the domain, if I try to ping the same domain while mozilla resolvs it, I get the ip with ping at once, but mozilla still uses forever. I am useing the newset mozilla from the FreeBSD port tree(Mozilla 1.0)
Reporter: could you give us a specific test case, and steps to reproduce this ? It's difficult to investigate when you just say 'sometimes it doesn't work'. So if you can reproduce it, that'll help alot.
Summary: Takes long time to resolv hostnames → Takes long time to resolve hostnames
I am haveing problem reproduceing it myself, it justs happens in about 50% of the tries.
Please provide exact steps. There are two possible causes: 1- Our DNS lookups are somewhat inefficient. 2- BSD has IPv6+DNS related issues.
I have changed the nameserver I have been useing and it works alot better now, still don't understand why the lookup to alot longer time from mozilla then ping but it works anyway. The steps I took were entering an adresse and push enter.
The long time wait seemse to come when I try to enter two or more web pages at the same time.

I'v seen similiar behavior using Mozilla 1.1 and Mozill 1.0 on linux. I can't provide steps to reproduce but mozilla will periodically get in a state where it will take a very long time to load a page, the whole time the status bar will say "resolving xxxxx". It takes long enough that while waiting I often start netscape 4.7, go to the page I'm trying to get to and use that until mozilla gets unstuck. It does seem to enter this state when I'm trying to load things in multiple tabs at the same time, but that could just be because I'm almost always loading things in multiple tabs at the same time. If I wait long enough. Eventually, all the tabs that are trying to load pages will load their respective pages and things will be fine for a while. Eventually it will happen again. If I don't wait and I close mozilla and then restart it I can usually load the page I was trying to load without a problem. I also use mozilla on a windows box and haven't experienced this behavior on there.
