Yes,  very  bad  behavior  to  have enabled  by  default  for  sure.  In
about:config you can  change the following boolean  attribute to disable
such nonsense:

network.dns.disableIPv6

I have noticed that  it usually is due to a  poorly configure DNS server
(i.e. try  doing an AAAA  query for www.etrade.com) and  not necessarily
the resolver in this case.
