Description

While looking at log output when checking bug 1290365 I saw that we still try to connect IPv6 sockets to IPv4 targets (and vice versa) if the DNS resolution returns addresses for the other IP protocol.

Note: currently this results in NSPR "complaining back to us about this connection attempt and we abandon the socket.
We should simply avoid the connection attempt in the first place, like we do it already for IP addresses only.
