Um, as the original poster, I WANT IPv6. Not make IPv4 lookups faster by ignoring AAAA records. Further testing has IPv6 working just fine. Thing is when I enable the HIP API intercepts, FIrefox does not work. Like they are doing something 'non-standard' with the regualr TCP socket API so that HIP can't slide in there. I tried disabling a number of options, thinking it might be some security setting, but if it is, I have not found it.
