I installed UBUNTU 12.04 and configured for internet access. No issues there. However, my browser (firefox, chromium) is not able to load/display certain pages (mail.yahoo.com, thehindu.com, in.yahoo.com) after loading the web page title. The browser does not have problem with other sites (google, msn, ubuntu, etc...). Any reason why only certain pages are not loading?

This will set your computer to use Google's public DNS which is a fast and reliable DNS.
