I'm curious to see if you've had any success with the solutions offered so far. I'm having similar issues with Firefox 0.8 in KDE 3.2 on 5.2.1: the browser hangs at random times when attempting to resolve hostnames. I thought it was some weird reverse-dns issue, or maybe something to do with the fact that I'm forced to use an unofficial driver for my NForce2 NIC (net/nvnet -- http://www.onthenet.com.au/~q/nvnet/). But then, like you wrote, Lynx works just fine. I've tried ifconfig the media type with no success. (Anyone?)
