Gmail no longer loads on Firefox

Not only did I restart it the other day, I rebooted because

I've seen posts on Fedoraforum regarding similar issues. One 
of the solutions suggested is to open about:config in 
Firefox and do the following:

filter for "network.dns.disableIPv6" and change the value to 
true. It was stated that IPv6 addresses are searched first 
before resolving IPv4 and can hang for some reason.

Hope it gets resolved
