Yes, it is fetched with JavaScript. See below.

Newegg doesn't have a single IPv6 address attached to any of their 
domains. That's also ignoring the fact that Firefox, as well as glibc, 
will start with a IPv4 address by default unless it detects you have a 
real (non 6to4) IPv6 default route. Toggling a little setting in Firefox 
will do jack squat.

Explain yourself out of that one. I'm done with this thread.
