firefox cannot find server


I have just installed Fedora 15 and Firefox cannot find the server. I do have internet access, can use yum, can ping google.com, and can use google Chrome to access the internet OK. Any thoughts? It is not any big problem, since I can use Chrome, but just wondering what the problem might be with Firefox.

I did not set a proxy. What I did do was to set Firefox to not use a proxy. How would I disable ipv6 in Firefox?
