Konqueror needs to stop IPv6 somehow

Firefox (and Iceweasel, which I actually use, on Debian Sid) can avoid using IPv6 which speeds up dramatically the browsing experience, for me. But with Konqueror on KDE 4.3.4 on Debian Sid, I cannot figure out how to do this, and page loads take forever.

Konqueror has great support for browsing every network connection type, not just http(s), but the IPv6 support kills it for me as a Web (http) browser. I use it to browse all kinds of other network protocols tho (and Dolphin as well).

Last week, a patch was issued for the denial-of-service flaw, which affects all versions of BIND 9, open-source software originally developed by the University of California at Berkeley in the 1980s.
  • Researchers Create First Firmware Worm That Attacks Macs
    The common wisdom when it comes to PCs and Apple computers is that the latter are much more secure. Particularly when it comes to firmware, people have assumed that Apple systems are locked down in ways that PCs aren’t. It turns out this isn’t true. Two researchers have found that several known vulnerabilities affecting the firmware of all the top PC makers can also hit the firmware of MACs. What’s more, the researchers have designed a proof-of-concept worm for the first time that would allow a firmware attack to spread automatically from MacBook to MacBook, without the need for them to be networked.
