The test here http://test-ipv6.com/ say this: "Your browser has real working IPv6 address - but is avoiding using it. We're concerned about this." If i use IE i don't get this message.(and i don't want to use IE )

If I try the test site ( test-ipv6.com/ ) in the original post the results I receive include the following

Your DNS server (possibly run by your ISP) appears to have no access to the IPv6 Internet, or is not configured to use it. This may in the future restrict your ability to reach IPv6-only sites. 
Test if your ISP's DNS server uses IPv6 	  	
timeout (7.631s)

Obviously I am not in a position to test anything on IPv6 and so do not see the message that you do.
