While we're at mozilla-bashing, I've seen it many times sit there with
"Resolving host www.foo.bar" in the last line, and nothing proceding,
which is esp. annoying that www.foo.bar did provide some data before, and
it should thus be resolved.
A ktrace in that situation showed that Mozilla was sending many UDP
packets to the DNS server (which is localhost here).
Want to get a clue on IPv6 but don't know where to start? Try this:
* Basics -> http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2001/05/24/ipv6_tutorial.html
* Setup -> http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2001/06/01/ipv6_tutorial.html
Of course with your #1 IPv6 ready operating system -> www.NetBSD.org
