How about if mozilla is fixed instead? I tried setting v6only=0 and
it works as you say, but it can open up some security issues due to creating
another path for traffic that might seem to be otherwise disallowed.
As for the v6only setting, according to the man page, it affects whether
listening wildcarded ipv6 sockets also accept ipv4 connections. Does someone
know why this affects mozilla? What is mozilla listening on, and why?
