A couple of sites - slideshare.net and beta.indiawaterportal.org show
'connecting' on the status bar for a long time, but finally give the message
'address not found'. I have currently the updated version of Firefox running

I have filed a bug on Launchpad at https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/364436 ,

Would appreciate any help on this from the community.
