Firefox and URL (DNS?) resolution trouble

    I've noticed that the last 2-3 releases of Firefox browser have had
    certain problems with resolving URL's to IP's. Namely, sometimes when
    you enter or click a URL, it will take a while before actually finding
    the server, or sometimes it will timeout. After this, when you click
    the URL again, the site will be loaded immediately. Sometimes it also
    helps to double or triple click the URL.
    I've noticed this behavior on 3 computers so I consider this is a bug
    (and a quite annoying one).
    Anyone with similar problems, or maybe a solution to this issue?

    It's nothing to do with the browser. It's the DNS server at your ISP who
    have problems with the resolving. My ISP hade really *big* problems last
    winter, before they changed the servers.

    I also thought it might have been ISP's issue. However, I've had the
    same problem at three different ISP's, so I figured it might be
    Firefox. Also, I haven't noticed any such problems with other internet
