Why does Norton DNS take longer to go to a blocked site on Fox than IE?

What between to two browsers gives it a 10 second delay? IE is 5 seconds and Water/Firefox is 15 seconds.

Hi,
That sounds like asking what are the differences in the two browsers that cause the result. I'm not sure that there is an authority here who can respond. Which version of FF is 'water'. I have v15 and have not noticed any noticeable difference.

Sorry I can't provide a better answer

Hi Dan50,

Please help us to understand the issue better by answering the following questions.

Does it take about 15 seconds to get a website blocked when using Firefox?  During the 15 seconds, are you able to see the website or it takes these long to get the page blocked (see nothing during the 15 secs)?

What about regular (not blocked) websites, does it take a long time to surf online using Firefox?

Thanks,

Katie

The count down to get to the website takes 15 seconds in Firefox and Waterfox which is a 64 bit version of Firefox. IE takes only 5 seconds. So it takes that long for the count down timer to get to click the button to take me to the website. Surfing in Firefox is not slow at all. Neither IE. Just when using Norton DNS to go to to blocked websites (I'm only doing so when testing malware in a sandbox).

Dan50,

Thanks for the update.  Can you please let us know what Norton ConnectSafe (Norton DNS) IP addresses do you use?

Also, What version of Firefox, Waterfox and IE do you have?

Thanks,

Katie
