NetBSD loan8 5.99.25 NetBSD 5.99.25 (GENERIC) #4: Sat Apr  3 03:40:07 BST 2010  root@uksup2:/usr/obj/usr-current/i386/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
>Description:
When using 

hosts: files nis dns 

in /etc/nsswitch.conf, firefox (in this case, 3.5.5) initially starts with the first tab OK, subsequent pages do not open. The program is responsive, but the dns query never returns. 
>How-To-Repeat:
Configure a system to use 'files nis dns' for name resolution and try to use firefox... 
>Fix:
I avoid the problem by periodically synchronizing my /etc/hosts file with the NIS yphosts database, then using 'files dns' for name resolution.

 I have the same problem on my i386 and I can also resolve it
 by removing 'nis' from nsswitch.conf.

 Probably it only happens when both ypserv(8) and named(8) are
 running on the local host?
