From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2 i686; en-US; 0.8.1) BuildID: 2001032908 When trying to go to the specified page the window just sits there semingly not doing anything. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to http://www.apolyton.com/forums/ 2. Wait a very long time (some dns timeout presuably). Seems to be about 1 minut Actual Results: It just sits there for a long time. The page finally displays. Expected Results: Whatever it is the other browsers are doing. What it does now isn't very usefull. The site changed DNS address recently. Other browsers don't seem to have problems. If you want to see the bug in action you better hurry, presuming it is DNS update related.
On second glance the timeout seems to be around 5 minuttes.

Odd. Defnitely DNS stuff... NS 4.x loads this fine and fairly quickly, Mozilla and nslookup both time out on the lookup. Once NS 4.x has loaded it, it's in DNS cache, of course, and loads fine in Mozilla... Linux build 2001-04-02-05 and 2001-04-02-16

i didn't have any trouble loading this site with my 4/6 linux build, and if this is a DNS problem and nslookup is having problems, then there's not much hope for mozilla doing any better. I'm marking this bug as WORKSFORME, please reopen if you still see this bug.

The interesting part was that nslookup and the other browsers had no trouble resolving the hostname! (I don't have any nightlies around right now as they are currently useless for actual browsing, so I can't just verify on the fly.)
reporter: This bug is a "futured" or "untargeted" bug which has been "resolved/works for me". Most bugs meeting this criteria are usually somewhat out of date or working in the current builds. If this bug is not happening for you in a recent build (such as the Mozilla daily build, Mozilla 0.9.3, or Netscape 6.1), please use the friendly "Mark bugs as VERIFIED" radio button to set this bug to "VERIFIED/WORKS FOR ME" If you reported the bug on a platform (e.g. Linux) and other contributors reported on another platform (e.g. Mac OS), please comment that it works for you but do not verify it yet. For these multi-platform bug reports, we need to verify all reported platforms -OR- create new "still broken on platform X" bugs when you verify.
This works for me now.
