Read <http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html>.  Your
question above is missing EVERYTHING that might help someone figure
out what's happening.

Among the stuff people would need to know:

1.  What's "very slow"?  Three seconds?  Three minutes?  Three weeks?

2.  What version of Debian?

3.  What browser(s)? (Both at home and at the office.) 

4.  What VERSION of each browser?

5.  What connection type at home and at the office?  For instance, do
    you have a T3 at the office and a dialup modem at home?

6.  Do you have a proxy at home?  At work?  Does each proxy cache?  

Do you begin to see how hard to answer your question is?  

BTW, www.nytimes.com loads in just under three seconds here, using
Debian Sarge, Mozilla Firefox, Optimum Online cable modem access, and
Privoxy as a non-caching proxy.
