OK, it's obviously not a site-specific thing.

If, when that happens, you access the same site again, is this second

But is it reproducible in the sense that when it happens, it happens
more than once?

Not browser-specific either.

Oh. Many components, many potential problem sources.

502? You said 504 before.
Anyway, since both messages are associated with a gateway or proxy, does
the message contain any hint which server issued it (if in doubt, copy
the message verbatim).

Another potential problem source excluded.

I'm not familiar with mtr. But two things catch my eye:
1. The "Resolver error"s on some of the shots.
2. The massive packet loss on some .bezequint.net machines.
Especially 2. may be a understandable cause for the symptoms you're seeing.
Which of the devices listed in the shots are in your home? Very likely
192.168.123.254. Are there more?
Especially if the machine before the machine which is shown with the
massive packet loss doesn't belong to your net, there's probably not
much you can do.
Clutching at straws: you could try to lower the MTU of your external
interface and see if that changes anything.

Pressing Ctrl-S should freeze the output, enabling you to copy it.
