Issue with firefox and testing DNS Servers for IPv6

If I tell my computer to use 207.126.105.68 and 207.126.105.84 for DNS 
when I go to <http://test-ipv6.com/> it reports that

> Your DNS server (possibly run by your ISP) appears to have IPv6 
> Internet access.

If I tell my computer to use 204.186.110.76 and 204.186.80.251 for DNS, 
when I go to that site with firefox it still reports the same but with 
Chrome/Chromium

it reports that

I was wondering what is going and how to fix Firefox so that it reports 
the correct info every time.

Thank you.

Why do you assume it's a Fx problem instead of Chrome?

Because with Chrome, it always reports the correct info.

DNS Test Issue
Hi Steve, Yesterday all seemed to work well, both with FF 3 and IE7 all fully patched. I use Cox Cable with a forward facing Netgear WGR614 V5 wireless router and a Dlink EBR-2310 wired router internally attached to the wireless. My particular box is on the Dlink. The kids PC and the WII are on the netgear. The issue is that both today and yesterday the Number of Unique nameservers querying fields were always blank. Both FF and IE7. Yesterday both would get exactly 6 red dnsprobe squares, report 9 different servers all with the same IP address except for the least si...

Server and Test Box Issue
Hi guys I have an application that I build and when i make changes on my test computer and make an upload to the web server, the application/server does not seem to pick up the changes that were made in the new files that got uploaded. has anyone come across this before? I have resetted IIS (which is pretty much what I thought should have take care of it), but that does not work  Any input on this will be helpful what files are you uploading. remember, if you are building web application project, then you need to upload aspx, aspx.resx(if you are using resources), .dll files ...

DNS Test
Steve, Can I assume the order the servers are listed is the same order they were found? Curiously, BIND9 with even 3 forwarders can and will decide to resolve itself at a very low rate during the test. Just now, only 17 of 3,769 queries are under my IP. Yet, consistently, it's never the last one listed.

DNS testing
Steve, It seems to me that you are getting much closer with the current version and most of the related issues are now due to timing, both round trip times and response times from servers/browsers. Might it be an idea to add some timing information into the test results? I would suggest adding round trip times (ping) to every query in the scroll boxes as a start. It would also be useful to have complete timings for each "round" and an overall time. On top of that how long it takes for a browser/OS to send a retry (+2.15 secs or something like that) and how many...
