Post slow rendering with Iceweasel
anticapitalista,
I run AntiX8 on an older Athlon2000-laptop, everything smooth and swift, perfect!. I just installed it on a recent P2-system, multibooting WinXP and PCLOS. The one thing I really cannot not remark is the slow rendering of internet-pages: it takes Iceweasel relatively long time to connect to servers and get the pages. The other OS'es - with FF 3.0.5 - are much quicker in showing all kinds of pages. I remarked the same thing with - the now removed - recent Sidux. What could be the cause?

Hello capricornus.

Not sure about where the the problem is coming from. It could be from your internet connection, so check that is ok including cables.
Is downloading as fast as it should be?

You could also try installing another browser (opera is fast), you should be able to get it using apt-get and see if it has the same rendering problem.

Edit: Danum, ipv6 is disabled by default in antiX (or it should be)
Edit 2: Whoops, ipv6 is not disabled by default. It will be for the final.
So follow Danum's advice.

Disabling IPV6 is one of the first things I do with Mozilla Browsers before even installing addons. About:config, you see, I know. That's not really it. It seems as if the browser hesitates, but why is FF not hesitating on other OS' es?

Lenny, & therefore Mepis 8 are the first........to ship with ipv6 enabled. IDK why though cuz it sure slows things down.
