Just installed mozilla 1.2a with windows XP and I see that mozilla cant resolve simple addresses for most sites. It gets stuck at the resolving stage, IE doesnt have this problem..
-> Networking, no blocker Have you disabled/configured the simple and easy to configure WIN XP Firewall ?

No I haven't( unless it does so automatically)... another interesting thing happened. I rebooted the PC and mozilla seemed to work fine... after sometime though I began getting timeouts when contacting sites whereas at the same time, using IE I could access those sites.
Please provide a detailed description of what happens. What does status say, what is the error message, etc.

Okay, seems that the problem is only exhibited in 1.2a. I installed 1.1 and it doesnt exhibit that behaviour. What happened in 1.2a was that mozilla would get stuck at the message saying resolving host. After that it couldnt connect to any site which I hadn't already visited. Seems like some problem with DNS caching or something similar. What I din't try was putting the IP address of the sites in place of te URL... but for that I will have to "upgrade" back to 1.2a
sounds like non-DNS cached lookups stopped working for you. Please do the IP address test if you can, it is the litmus test for this situation.
Are you still seeing this problem? What was the outcome of using the IP address in the URL bar?

Well, I downgraded to 1.1, as I had written and when I upgraded to 1.2a after that, I dint see this problem again. So could be some installation issue. I am not very sure... I think u can close the bug.
Great, thanks for checking.
