I am running Ubuntu 11.10 (via Wubi). When IPv6 is set to "Ignore" with Network Manager, the machine still creates an auto-configured address and will use it (for example Firefox accessing http://www.google.com) instead of using the IPv4 address. Am I missing anything ?

I know that there are other ways to disable IPv6, but still would like to understand the meaning of this "Ignore" option.

This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions here. I would disable IPv6 via another method. –  bodhi.zazen Apr 2 '12 at 3:26
