DNS issues

I just installed F11 beta and updated to the latest packages. It was working 
fine so far, but then suddenly I got issues with domain name resolving.

When I use Firefox, Thunderbird, wget, whatever, I always get an error message 
that the domain name could not be resolved. Anyhow the network is up, DNS 
server IPs are set correctly and I can even use dig and ping to successfully 
resolve domain names. When I enter a plain IP address at Firefox, it also 
fetches the page correctly.

Configuration files seem to be correct, there are no hints in the log files, I 
even checked that there is no proxy set, but I found nothing. I created a 
clean user to make sure there is no configuration messed up. I rebooted the 
system, but still got that issue. I'm totally clueless now...

Is this a F11 bug? I have had a look at bugzilla, but I wasn't sure what I 
should search for.
