Yes, turn off SELinux/AppArmor and all iptables rules and see if that helps.
AFAIK, all of the applications you mentioned use the same resolver
library. If some applications (host) work, and others (ssh, firefox)
don't, then it seems clear that something is interfering with the
library calls from the failing applications.
