Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.5

Description: Ubuntu 9.10

Enter a website into the address bar and click go. Expected to arrive at the website in 1 to 2 seonds

It take 5 to 10 seconds before the status bar indicates any action is taking place, i.e. that it has contacted the server and maybe another 10 second before I get to that website. Any internal navigation of a site take as long or a little less time.

The type of sites that take time to load,

Everysite beside google it seems

This has nothing to do with my internet connection, or my computer hardware, which is obvious since the XP version doesn't take as much time.

I was connecting to my router via wireless card, when plugged directly in there is the same delay present.

Further more I have installed Opera 10.10 and it does not suffer from this problem.
