When using 

hosts: files nis dns 

in /etc/nsswitch.conf, firefox (in this case, 3.5.5) initially starts with the 
first tab OK, subsequent pages do not open. The program is responsive, but the 
dns query never returns. 
Configure a system to use 'files nis dns' for name resolution and try to use 
I avoid the problem by periodically synchronizing my /etc/hosts file with the 
NIS yphosts database, then using 'files dns' for name resolution.
