I can fetch the header of websites via IPv6 but not the webpage, why?

Since I have no fr**king clue what could the problem be, I'm trying on 
this list :)

I have a native IPv6 connection on my Desktop behind my router.

curl -v -6 http://anyurl.foo

doesn't work, the connection just times out SOMETIMES (when there is a 
problem, tcpdump on the router says I doesn't even receive any packets 
back, ip6tables is empty on the Desktop).. BUT a:

curl -v -6 --head http://anyurl.foo

is perfectly working. See my ping from my Desktop:

root at server:~# ping6 -c 10 -s 2000 -M do IPV6ADDRESSOFANYURL.FOO
2000 data bytes From IPV6ADDRESSOFSOMEGATEWAY icmp_seq=1 Packet too big: 
2008 bytes from IPV6ADDRESSOFANYURL.FOO: icmp_seq=2 ttl=54 time=82.5 ms
2008 bytes from IPV6ADDRESSOFANYURL.FOO: icmp_seq=3 ttl=54 time=82.4 ms

soo... it couldn't be an MTU problem.. since the ping is ok.. (?) -> 
there are icmp echo replies..

WHY does the connection "randomly gets bad"? (so sometimes it works, 
sometimes not, the "anyurl" is ex.: youtube, facebook, and it works from 
other places via IPv6 when it doesn't work behind my Desktop..)

Any help would be appreciated.. a keyword to what to google for or sth.

IMHO the problem isn't on my Desktop or on the remote site (other 
Desktops behind the router are sometimes bad).

Maybe between somewhere, but how can I know which GW is bad that are 
shown in a traceroute?

(xxx is my original IPv6 addres, just censored)

The "Permission denied" appears even when trying with root
