Unbelievable, this bug still manages to bug people on the latest and fully updated Ubuntu 11.04!
The strangeness of the situation is as follows:

ubuntu 11.04, uname -a:
Linux 3.0.0-mine #3 SMP Thu Jul 28 14:03:44 CDT 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Where, with firefox 5.0, epiphany, chromium some websites take very long time to load, while everything else involving connection is fast. E.g., w3m, lynx and especially elinks are extremely fast! At the same time on!!!! On the

ubuntu 10.04:
 uname -a
Linux 2.6.35.13-mine #1 SMP Fri May 6 00:20:57 CDT 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Exact same browsers are almost as fast as their text-based brethren.

So, IMHO, the problem resides not with the actual browser(s) but with something else.
This is getting ridiculous!
