Is it the same host name as the original site, or lots more? 

If it's more than just the original site, it is probably dns prefetching.
That shouldn't slow things down, it is just looking up the host names for
all (or some of?) the links on the page.

You could try to disable dns prefetching, add this to your prefs.js (it
won't show up in about:config):

	user_pref("network.dns.disablePrefetch", true);
