Firefox 3.5 loading pages very slowly

The new version of Firefox is loading pages very slowly on Ubuntu. The workaround is to use Swiftfox (Google it).

Welcome to the sphere, sjohn, and thanks for the suggestion. I don't think I was using a beta, I think I was using a final version 3.5 . Regardless of that a lot of people have complained about slow loading in the recent past - some have suggested that it's due to ipv6 and to disable that. That didn't work for me and in fact Swiftfox is now suffering from nearly as slow loading. I don't know what's going on but I haven't got to the bottom of it yet. If you have a good solution let us know.

I had the same problem, slow firefox in Karmic - 9.10. I tried different browsers and it didn't help. I ended up going back to 9.04 until a good solution is found.
I also tried swiftfox and it didn't help enough. I still have 9.10 installed on another partition, but I never use it because of the slowness.
Glad you posted this, hope a solution is found :D

title bar:
"about:config"

search bar:
"ipv"

change default 'false' by double clicking to read.....restart fox/or any moz based
network.dns.disableIPv6;true
