this issue occurs in both Opera 10 and firefox 3.5:
When I go to a site for the first time (and sometimes even if I’ve been there before), there’s a huge lag while it’s looking up the address (about 7 seconds). Once it finds it, it runs normally/fast from then on, in clicking on diff. links in that site. The site doesn’t matter: google, cnn, opensuse, etc.
I originally was using openDNS as my DNS servers in my router but changed that yesterday to my ISP’s DNS’. The issue still seems to be occurring. Any ideas?

I may be wrong about this but if anything there are less risks in that some
firewalls aren’t able (or aren’t configured) to deal with IPv6 and it could
end up passing the packets along unchecked.
The setting is found in Yast–>Network Devices–>Network Settings–>Global
Options–>IPv6 Protocol Settings
