The version of firefox is 3.5.10 on F12. The problem, however, turns out
to be related to an update last night that caused my dns server to fail.
Last night's update screwed up support for dnssec in named. Some one
earlier provided what looked to be a workaround to the problem, but it
didn't work. When I disable dnssec support in named then firefox name
lookups start to work. Chrome obviously does not use dnssec.
This dnssec issue also affected thunderbird.
