Visual Studio 2005, Built-in web server and Firefox

Have you experienced terribly slow speed when attempting to debug/view ASP .NET sites locally on Windows Vista with Mozilla Firefox? The terrible performance will occur when using the built in "Cassini" web server to dish up your development pages.

Even after installing the Visual Studio SP1 along with the Vista update, Firefox will load pages 1, item, at, a, time, so, slow, that, it, is, as, if, you, are, loading, the, page, with, a, 1200, baud, modem, rather than from your local hard drive. It ends up being pretty easy to fix this problem: disable IPv6 within Firefox.

Fire up Firefox and type about:config in the address bar. Now type ipv6 into the filter text box. Either right-click and select toggle (or double-click) on the network.dns.disableIPv6 to set the value to true.

Once the network.dns.disableIPv6 value is set to true, Firefox will be back to its normal self and as speedy as before.

Thank you so much for this insight!!! I was totally frustrated about this problem and even started considering if my programing skills in ASP.NET were the problem! :-) Thanks!

Marco,

You are welcome, I am glad I helped!

Ben
