As well known, Google announce its service for IPv6 users named as "Google over IPv6", which make a great convenience for Ipv6 User like me. But during my usage of firefox over IPv6 network, I found sometime firefox will go to IPv4 address when I visit a dual-stack website, it is so bad for me because my IPv6 link is preferred and even free. I am looking for some solution in "about:config" , but I just find only network.dns.ipv4OnlyDomains exists, but no network.dns.ipv6OnlyDomains. I think it is necessary, and will be more urgent after ISP like Tomcast to promote its IPv6 ISP service

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
sometime firefox will go to IPv4 address when I visit a dual-stack website

I think no, the two bugs which you mentions are about the auto selection. But which I wanted is a manual option to make user can select IPv6/IPv4. It will be complement of auto selection.

And I think it will be not so complicated, because similar option exists for IPv4
Version: unspecified → 3.6 Branch
Due to some filtering in some areas, this functionality is really necessary to reach some websites without explicitly entering the ipv6.* prefix in the address bar.
