Hmm, don't know that I agree with that. I've seen issues in other places with IPV6 turned on or off respectively. Perhaps the
correct way to test that is to make sure to run firefox with all extensions turned off, IPV6 set on, see what newegg.com looks like,
turn off IPV6, checkout newegg.com again. That way you are sure that extensions are doing something weird and can verify the
validity of IPV6 getting in the way or not.
