Weird DNS/firefox under linux problem [View all]

Ok, I'm hoping someone can tell me where to go to change a setting or config so this quits happening.

I use firefox under fedora, and it seems like every time I have trouble getting DNS, firefox suddenly decides that whatever website I was trying to reach should simply be assigned to my own IP address. And refreshing won't help, it then has decided that my IP IS the correct IP for that website until I kill off firefox and restart it. Iirc, even doing 'server network restart' doesn't even fix the issue unless I've also done a killall on firefox, so wherever the screwed up DNS mapping is being kept, it's in memory used by the browser, not by the system.

Any ideas? I've had these same problems across multiple versions of both the browser and the OS.
