If this is related to the problem that made mozilla hang for a few seconds
on some lookups (ISTR it being related to missing AAAA records), it has
been fixed a while ago (at least in firebird). The OP didn't specify the
mozilla version he's using
Apart from that, I also like the local DNS cache approach. You can do it
with the built-in named as well.
