aka Firefox, DNS lookups and IPv6 (under Arch)

Since my laptop is running with Arch, sometimes my Firefox makes me crazy when i'm trying to open a new page because it show a message like Looking up for minutes !

After googling a few seconds i've found someting that is working for me...

  1. Go to about:config
  2. Search for network.dns.disableIPv6
  3. Set it to true

That is only a workaround because i have no time to debug the root cause.
