Firefox first connection

I wonder if anyone can help.

Just recently the first time I start firefox it takes so long to ask for a connection to my ADSL that by time the ADSL has connected Firefox has timed out. I then get unable to connect to ....

It always used to start fine and I can't say that I have changed anything. If a connection is already present then there are no problems and it starts fine. If I use IE then I have no problems and it dials straight away.

I know I could connect before starting firefox but it's just a pain.

I run windows XP, Virgin ADSL, Firefox is ver 1.0.3
