1. I'm not certain...

...why this would happen with firefox but you could try using opendns rather than your gateway for dns service.
This might solve your problem and if you're using a home network with a router, this may speed your browsing a bit.
If you travel with your pc, you may have to change this back as some public networks demand you login, accept their TOS... Those networks often redirect you to these pages by intercepting web traffic which can't happen if you've replaced the gateway/dhcp configured dns addr.
