People are having connection issues on firefox https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/x1um0o/browser_problems_after_1040_and_10401/

A fix for this is going to about:config

network.dns.disableIPv6 and set to true

Disabling ipv6 is a fix, but is this safe?

I think mozilla team should look into what exactly is making ipv6 cause connection issues.

WARNING from the moderator team: Changing Firefox pref from the about:config page can sometimes break Firefox or cause strange behavior. You should only do this if you know what you're doing.

Please read Firefox Advanced Customization and Configuration Options to learn more.

This is a known issue for some systems and the Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can Mozilla Support article suggests the about:config solution. See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can#w_ipv6

As for Mozilla looking into the issue, I found Bug 300302 network.dns.disableIPv6 should be set to true by default (at least on OS/2). I also found this meta bug that links to other related bug reports: Bug 136898 [meta] IPv6 support (see Bugzilla Etiquette before commenting in bug reports.)
