[opensuse] IPv6 in Firefox: does it work? The saga continues...
Long time ago, on Jan 2011 I asked this same question.

Try this instead:

http:///[FE80::21E:BFF:FE08:4CCB%eth0]

That format works for me.


Indeed! That one works. Three or two bars, both work.

But it is a terrible format!

Here we go again. If in firefox I try to browse to “http:///[FE80::21E:BFF:FE08:4CCB%eth0]”, I get redirected to google. The address is correct, I can ping it:

cer@rescate1:~> ping6 "FE80::21E:BFF:FE08:4CCB%eth0"
PING FE80::21E:BFF:FE08:4CCB%eth0(fe80::21e:bff:fe08:4ccb) 56 data bytes

I have tried several combinations, but firefox will accept none. And it's made worse because it insist on googling it instead of giving an error. Can I disable google on the address bar? I can search myself if I want it...

Ok, I found how to disable search, set keyword.enabled to false. Then I get the
proper error:

“The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded.”

Here, they talk about this, it appears to be a bug:

Or that LL addresses should not be used, but I have no idea what I should use
instead.
