In firefox after typing in an address, say for example http://www.yahoo.com it takes forever for the page to load. However, a quick fix is to to press ctrl+tab to create a new tab and type an other address say google.com. As soon as you press enter they both instantly load without any problems whatsoever. That to me is weird. My internet connection is super fast and I’m sure that is not the issue because I also have a laptop with XP and all pages load without any weird delays and without having to tab and load an other page.
This can’t be normal.
I don’t know if anyone else is experiencing this or its a “Feature” of Server 08..
Any ideas anyone? 🙄

I ‘ve never heard/had this problem before in Windows Server 2008. Do you also have this problem in Internet Explorer? Probably not? Any extensions/plugins that might cause this problem? Tried running Firefox in Safe Mode?
Does the firefox.exe process eats 100% CPU of one core while it is loading so slow? You can check whether it takes so long to send the GET request to the server or to get the response back by using for example Wireshark. In Wireshark you can right-click the packet that goes from the ip-address of your computer to Yahoo’s ip-address and click Follow TCP stream. If you only see the GET / HTTP/1.1 etc. but not the HTTP/1.1 200 OK etc. you know the (connection to) the server is taking ages to respond. If you do get the HTTP/1.1 200 OK with the html after that you know that Firefox is rendering it too slow.
Maybe the people at the Firefox Support Forum do know the solution for this problem.
