This is kind of weird. From my Win 7 machine (Firefox 13) it takes 46 seconds to reach FaceBooks's sign in page. Same to the first page after that. From XP machine (same FireFox -- same plugins and extensions) in takes 2 seconds. Both go through same router. I have flushed the DNS cache. Every other site I try connects in normal time ... just FB seems to be slow from this machine. There must be some little think I am overlooking.
