Usually these days (last couple of months?) when I click a link in
Firefox pointing to an online Debian manpage it takes a very long time
to load, and sometimes drops out.
OTOH if I paste the address directly in the address bar it opens
I also right-clicked the link, "copy link location" and pasted it into
another tab's address bar. It appeared as exactly the same URL in the
address bar, but loaded immediately. Likewise if I select the text,
Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V in Firefox. Immediate.
I've only noticed this with the Debian manpages site though. URLs in
mail messages are usually opened instantly in a new non-focussed tab.
Maybe some addon some of us are using is getting in the way of Mozilla's
handling of link requests?
(That first tab still hasn't loaded why I've been slowly typing this.)
