Slow request for css- and js-files in Firefox

Hi everybody,
actually we observer a strange behavior on a workstation (WinXP Pro SP3) while using Firefox (Version 10.0.0.2). With Firebug (Version 1.9.1) we can see that requests for js- and css-files have to wait 20 seconds until they are further processed.
There is an application in a local Jboss-instance (localhost: 8080) which is used. In order to troubleshoot the problem we already reinstalled the Firefox, reset the user settings, set the value "network.dns.disableIPv6" in about:config to "true". The last change has resolved the problem for about 2 hours until it appeared again.

Does anyone have an idea what could cause the problem?
Is there a timeout of 20seconds im Firefox which could cause the problem?

Thanks a lot and with best regards
David

hello.
Your test are always done with the firebug addon? It is known to slow these processes as it analyses the code. Is your cache enabled?
Another browser like google chrome/chromium does it behaves the same?
please feedback.

Hi stergium,
yes we always use the combination firefox/firebug in company as standard, so the other browser-types are not tested as they can't be rolled out here.

The cache is activated but the following parameter is changed from standard:
In about:config "browser.cache.check_doc_frequency" is now set to "0".

0 = Check for a new version of a page once per session (a session starts when the first application window opens and ends when the last application window closes).

ok. try disabling the firebug addon for testing purposes.
it should load faster.  I have a question. Does this happen to only one workstation or all of them ? In case of happening only on one of them , is there something different on software/hardware configuration from the other workstations?

Hi,
we disabled the Add-on but the problem is still there.

Also the disabling of cache did not fix it.

The problem only appears on this one workstation. The main-difference is the os. It is the last workstation running windows-xp. All other workstations are already using windows 7.
