Default Slow dns resolution

Any of you experiencing slow host resolution. My Internet speed is okay (per speedtest), it takes ridiculously long for the browser to resolve the host I've tested this in Vivaldi and Firefox.

I've noticed it here and there--via FF and Palemoon. It hasn't (yet) lasted long enough to go beyond the "hmmmm...why is the response time so slow..." stage...

Restart Windows (no change), restarted modem (no change), flushed Windows DNS cache (no change), restart Windows again (fixed).

In the spirit of "Correlation does not imply Causation" I'll mention that the problem may not have been "in your set" as they used to say on TV. The DNS server may've been having problems (that got corrected at around the time your second Windows restart completed).

On some level that makes sense to me that it worked...I've made a note to flush the dns on my system if I find things slow again...

On the other hand, it's Known Fact that if you wait 20 minutes for the bus, decide "Oh the hell with it" and light up a cigarette, the bus will arrive before you've exhaled the first puff.

Alas, since I gave up smoking a decade and change ago, I can no longer control bus arrival times. Nothing's easy.
