Is it perhaps 'prefering' IPv6 and you've configured an IPv6 address locally
while your ISP won't respond properly to IPv6 -> IPv4 nat translation?  I'd
suggest making sure your local network configuration has IPv6 disabled and see
if that firefox now does not care whether IPv6 is not disabled.

If your ISP misbehaves, try not letting IPv6 traffic out of your machine (don't
configure an address for the family).  The application should not choose to try
and generate IPv6 traffic if it is not told you have IPv6 connectivity.
