I’m using lxde 11.4. This seems like an odd problem - to me. My connection to the net varies. My download speeds are quite excellent but when I click on a link including bookmarks in any browser there anywhere between 5-30 sec connection delay. I thought it might be a problem from my provider but as I said, downloads are excellent. So when I have this problem, I simply type what I want directly into the address box and my connection is immediate. I’m not sure what other information to convey. Let me know - thanks.
The speed results were the same under opensuse and puppy but the browser speed - response time was dramatically different. In fact, (no tests to document this) the whole test passed by much faster under puppy. All links are sluggish under opensue with all browsers that I tested including chrome, opera and firefox. This wasn’t the case when I first installed lxde version of opensuse. All tests are clean in that there are no extra tabs etc, no other operations running in the background etc.

A little more correctly - does your DNS supplier (probably your ISP) handle IPv6
correctly? It is not wise to disable IPv6 in most cases as there soon will be
sites that are not accessible with IPv4.
If your DNS server returns an AAAA+ record and does not handle IPv6 correctly,
then you will get a timeout on EVERY request. You can either disable IPv6 (not
recommended), or switch to public name servers that implement IPv6 correctly. To
do this, edit /etc/resolv.conf (as root) and replace the existing “nameserver”
Those servers are run by Google and work correctly.
