Configure and disable ipv6 on opera web browser
I prefer using opera than any other web browser. An I have all plugins installed so I do not want to use any other browser.

I want to disable ipv6 on opera web browser because my internet for some reason doesnt support it so i cant log into hotmail and stuff. I dont know how though. When i type about:config in the opera address bar and i try searching or looking for ipv6 i cant find it.

How do I disable ipv6 on opera?

My understanding tho limited, is that if you do NOT even own IPV6 hardware, it won't even work for you despite the fact that Linux loads it for you. I have it turned off in linux, and windows doesn't even use it either and I use opera/firefox in a 50/50 split.

all you need to do is disable ipv6 module from ever loading by blacklisting it.
while the above poster it theoretically right that it shouldn't make a difference.
the web browsers arent written so that that is true.

I don't understand you here could you clarify please? I do know that in about:config of firefox on linux the ipv6 can be toggled on/off.

well what you get from these web browsers when you have ipv6 enabled is this back and forth dance about every darn connection. (stupid dramatization only)
browser -> hello ipv6 webserver lets dance
webserver <- ipv6 oh know not me i'm confused
browser -> then i'm confused too what do we do ?
webserver <- i use ipv4
browser -> hello ipv4 webserver lets dance
webserver <- OK

meanwhile back in cyberland user is about to through slow box in trash.
