In simpler terms: with a default Ubuntu install, if you're not using
IPv6, you shouldn't even know it's there. If you're experiencing
negative side effects, they're likely the result of a broken application
or incorrect configuration. Firefox, for instance, is a known culprit.

One thing you can try is, with IPv6 enabled, to launch a terminal, and
type 'host www.google.com'. If the command succeeds quickly, listing
Google's IPs, then you're not having general network connectivity
trouble, and you can start filing bug reports against whichever specific
applications are being slow.
