Hi Again Yuandan Zhang!

One more thing.  You mention "about:config" which I believe means that
you edited the line concerning "IPv6-dns disable" in your Firefox
browser.  That is fine for Firefox but other things may wish to
resolve names using IPv6 name service so you should probably see my
previous post which I believe is a better answer.

Good Hunting!

Tod
