Description of problem:
webpages www.nytimes.com (New York Times) and www.reuters.com load
extremely slowly. Seems to be true of pages with sophisticated
graphics setups. This problem did not occur with Fedora Core 1.
Pages load eventually and look correct. Simple pages load fine....
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open mozilla browser from toolbar
2.point browser to www.nytimes.com
Actual Results: Very slow loading time
Expected Results: In Fedora Core 1 page loaded almost instantaneously
Following a suggestion on dslreports all things unix forum, I inserted
the following code in /etc/modprobe.conf
alias net-pf-10 off
Problem was then solved in all cases. However the fact that IPv6 is
disabled seems less than satisfactory....
I had exactly the same problem, with all FC2, since test1. This
"alias..." inserted in modprobe.conf solved it.
Thank you. I was trying to figure this out since a long time.
But what was happening?
For me, 99% of the web pages was incredible slow. Only 192.168.11.1
and 192.168.0.1 (my ADSL modem and my router) was loading quickly.
I noticed with Mozilla and Firefox that pages loaded very slowly when
automatic proxy configuration was enabled, but not if the proxy was
entered manually. This is also with FC2.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing per lack of response. Note that FC1 and FC2 are no longer
supported even by Fedora Legacy. Please install a still supported
version and retest. If this still occurs on FC3 or FC4 and is a
security issue, please assign to that version and Fedora Legacy. If it still
occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct version.
mozilla itself is not shipped in FC6, so for most of these bugs that means
testing in FC5 or against firefox.
