Yes, I have the same symptoms on sarge with firefox (from
mozilla tarball) and network.dns.disableIPv6 true.  While firefox is
resolving the address, I can bring up a terminal, $ host 'url' and get
an ip address long before firefox gets it.  The problem is very
intermittent and usually not a problem.  Restarting firefox seems to
help.  (Rarely, I plug the ip directly into firefox.)
