I always use Firefox as my web browser. A week or two ago, it made an automatic update and told me to restart that browser for the changes to take effect. I did, and it doesnt work now. I just get the "Server Not Found" error. Hopefully its just a simple fix, but I cant figure it out. Please help and thanks in advance

Hi not_again3x,

There has been some talk going around about this problem.

The problem may be with IPv6 ("Internet Protocol version 6"). You may want to try this:

To disable IPv6, change the preference network.dns.disableIPv6 from "false" to "true" .

Here are the steps:

Type about:config in the address bar, press Enter.
Find network.dns.disableIPv6 in the list.
Right-click -> Toggle.
Restart Firefox/Mozilla Suite and try again.

If this doesn't work, re-enable IPv6 by resetting the preference to "false".

Let us know if this works for you. :whistling:
