I recently installed Squid on my desktop machine for testing purposes. I didn't edit the config whatsoever, and just pointed firefox at the proxy to see if it was working.
Pages take an insanely long time to load, and sometimes just load forever. I don't mean for example, 10 second page loads. I mean 10 MINUTE page loads, or more.
I have Googled around and added 2 lines to my config:
dns_nameservers 126.96.36.199 dns_v4_first on
and these have not helped whatsoever.
Is there any reason this could be happening?
For reference, my desktop machine is running Arch Linux on a quad core 3Ghz i5 and 16GB of RAM.
