Running Firefox on the latest version of Fedora, after a few minutes of use, Firefox becomes unable to access many websites. It seems to be limited to websites I visit frequently, but It's hard to tell. It doesn't affect all sites, though. It also affects the same sites every time. Restarting the browser fixes it, and it will often fix itself given enough time, also.

I've tried erasing my history and cookies, resetting the browser, and browsing without any add-ons enabled, but nothing seems to have an effect.

Try to disable IPv6.

Also check for other issues.

You can try to reset (power off/on) the router.

Creating a new profile doesn't help. After a bit of time, the problem still happens.

The same websites are affected, too.

It seems to be an issue with IPv6. While my router is IPv6 enabled, my internet connection is only IPv4. Since I don't currently use IPv6, disabling it works well enough for me.

Thank you for the help.
