Thread: Firefox and Online update not working...

    Default Firefox and Online update not working...

    Hi

    I'm running Opensuse 3 on an EEE PC, and so far had no problems. I brought it to another house today and now Firefox seems to be unable to connect to the network.. Network is working however, as Skype is running fine. Online update won't work either. Any ideas what as to what could be causing this?

    You can connect with skype but not with firefox? You can even make a call?

    Somethings wrong with the router I think. Fierwall or something.

    yeah fixed it... what worked was turning off ivp6 in both networksettings of opensuse and then in firefox do an 'about:config' and toggle network.dns.disableipv6 to true

    thanks guys
