Native IPv6 Problem - no DNS query when using firefox and IE

Native IPv6 Problem - no DNS query when using firefox and IE
I am a newbie of IPv6 and I am setting up a Linux apache and bind server to test the behaviour of Windows XP,Vista, 7 and Mac OS X.

I have setup a apache and bind already and they were tested individually. I used Firefox and IE to access the apache page by type in the IPv6 address and the page was showed correctly. And I have tried to query the AAAA record of a local zone "testing.com" in my Bind server using nslookup and the result is good too.

However, it is strange that I cannot get it work if I type in the FQDN "http://testing.com" in Firefox and IE. I tried to capture the IPv6 traffic in Wireshark (Attached in this post) and there are no DNS query when I try to access the page. Is there anything that I have to set to get it work properly?
(Actually I have tested the same thing on Mac OS X and Vista too but the result is the same)

Below is my Windows 7 network setting and some nslookup query:
