fc6 and unable to browse

since upgrading to fc6 I can only browse selected sites.
I can connect ok,

wget www.bbc.co.uk

Connecting to www.bbc.co.uk||:80
HTTP request sent,awaiting response...

This doesn't seem to be a dns issue, could it be ipv6?

If you want to disable ipv6 support, do the following:
Disabling IPv6 in Linux:
edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
and disable ipv6 support

for firefox:
in address bar, type about:config
search for "ipv"
the set the value to "true"

yes, done that, thanks. Doesn't seem to make any difference. Obviously not an ipv6 issue. I really don't know what this could be. It happened specifically after upgrading from kernel 2.6.15. When I roled back to 2.6.15 it was fine.

Do you know if anything specifically changed that might cause this?

You can also try this as root. sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_window_scaling=0. This is only a fix for certain sites that take a long time to load. If you are having problems with all (or most) sites this may not help (but won't hurt), and when you reboot it's gone so you need to do it again or put it in a startup script.

I don't remember who to thank for this
