maybe this is not related, but anyway, Mozilla network part is,
IMHO, unstable regardless from IPv6 support.
- it does not even try multiple IPv4 address listed on h_addr_list.
it only tries the first IPv4 address available, and not others.
- if IPv6 support is enabled, and IPv4/v6 addresses are returned,
it tries to contact first available IPv6 address only. no fallback
