I only have ipv6 connectivity via a HE tunnel on my router, so normally I want to prefer ipv4 over ipv6. For some websites however, I would like to prefer ipv6.

Right now I have just set DisabledComponents to 0x20 and hard coded the ipv6 resolution into my hosts file for the sites i want to access over ipv6. Since these ip addresses change at times, this is not a good solution.

Any ideas on how to handle this in a non-clunky way? Some kind of Chrome/Firefox add-on might do the trick, but I couldn't find one for this purpose.

A different question on askubuntu site (askubuntu.com/questions/9181/…) gives a hint that it is OS that sets what's preffered in this case. –  modosansreves Oct 2 '12 at 10:45

Use the IPv6 address of the website. For example, to go to http://www.google.com , use this address http://[2001:4860:0:2001::68]/
