13 It used to be the case that FF would search in advance for the Google or
14 whichever search engine of choice you have selected (on the top RH search
15 window) by prefetching some relevant pages. Could this have something to do
16 with your case? Other than that my guess is that you have setup Gentoo in
17 some place within FF, or one of its extensions and it loads, or prefetches
18 the page in question. A search through its config might help.
