Hello, Have a look at the different "ad.doubleclick.net" addresses included in the web site.
Find out the ip address and put them in your /etc/hosts file like this: 126.96.36.199 ad.doubleclick.net 188.8.131.52 uk.doubleclick.net 184.108.40.206 ad.uk.doubleclick.net 220.127.116.11 ad.fr.doubleclick.net This will solve the loading time of the different websites with konqueror, firefox etc( sticking to load 90% of the images of the web site). This issue doesn't seem to exist when you use Opera.
