Thread: Firefox Fix

  1. #1

    Firefox Fix

    If you've been having trouble accessing sites with Firefox lately, especially Google-based sites, it is because Firefox is defaulting to ipv6 DNS now. You can't blame them for being progressive, but it doesn't change the fact that 96% of the internet is still using ipv4, and more importantly, your pages are going to load very slowly.

    Here's the fix:

    1. Type about:config in your URL bar and hit Enter
    2. Click the "I'll be careful, I promise" button
    3. Search for IPv6
    4. Double-click the "network.dns.disableIPv6" line to set the value to true.

    That's it.

    That might have something to do with you using an older version of FF, or maybe a linux distro version that is being phased out.
