I have a virtualhost "myhost.local" configured in MAMP
My hosts file:
127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.0.1 myhost.local 255.255.255.255 broadcasthost #::1 localhost fe80::1%lo0 localhost
It worked fine.
After I upgraded my OS to the latest version (Lion), something changed because now Firefox/Chrome take a few seconds to find the myhost.local domain. It's very annoying to develop in these conditions.
It only happens if the domain has not been visited after some seconds (cache?) - any ideas?
