Firefox Browsing Problems

Firefox can sometimes have issues when browsing the internet.  Other browsers, such as Konqueror seemed to work perfectly fine, which meant it wasn't a problem with normal network configuration.

So, if you cannot browse in Firefox, you need to make some changes:

  • Click in the URL bar and type "about:config"
  • In the filter field, type "ipv6"
  • The entry "network.dns.disableIPV6" should appear as "false"
  • Double-click this and change it to "true"

The browsing problem should now be resolved.
