I believe that this only happens when you are using Tor as a socks
proxy from Mozilla directly.  But you shouldn't do that; you lose
anonymity when your own host connects to the DNS server!  You should
use privoxy as a HTTP proxy instead; see doc/CLIENTS in the Tor
distribution for more information about why and how.

If this problem persists when you're using privoxy, please let us know.
