    Default Suse 11 FireFox Add Ons / Gnome Backgrounds

    On a new install of 11 I'm getting some odd behavior.

    2 previous systems with new 11 install not doing this.

    1. When I try to add FireFox Add ons I don't get a download and the add on install fails.
    2. When I try to view or download Gnome Backgrounds from art.gnome.com I get a failed to connect error
    3. Opera gives the same problem when trying to view or download Gnome backgrounds.

    The problems seems to be related to ftp connections in the browser.

    ???

    Solved by disabling ipv6 for this network card.

    Found solution in Ubuntu forums.

    Why did this happen?

    Why is ipv6 blocking basic Gnome functionality?

    ??????????
