Hello, I am using FreeBSD 5.3BETA5. I haven't do anything to the kernel 
or anything system-related. I installed firefox 0.9.3. It takes more 
than 10 seconds to load mozilla's homepage. Of course other accessing 
to other sites gave the same results.

Then, to compare, I installed opera 7.54 and it loads pages in less 
than 2 seconds. However, firefox is my favourite browser. So, is there 
any way that I can know what is wrong? Does firefox keeps some logs 
when it connects? Or has anyone else experience the same problem?

btw, I installed softwares from the ports collection.
