My firefox takes almost a minute to load a page on every install (since Ubuntu 13.10 if I remember correctly). The only way to fix it is go to about:config (you write it where you write the pages url) and search for ipv6. Then change network.dns.disableIPv6 to true (maybe my router doesn't support IPv6 and causes firefox to search for it but it isn't needed ...

You can use ifconfig to check if your adapter is being recognized; possibly something is causing it to be blocked or taken "down": sudo ifconfig if you see your wireless adapter there, then move on to step 2.
