Firefox vs Network and Dialup connections
FF is driving me potty

 1:44 pm on Aug 4, 2004 (gmt 0)

Whenever I open Firefox (under Windows) About 20 seconds after the homepage opens (google.com) an error box is displayed. That I can live with, but sometimes if there is a network problem, a site can generate dozens of repeated error messages.

The error box is titled "Network and Dial-up connections".
The messages is something like "Error 623: The system cannot find the phone-book entry for ..."
I'm using Windows 2000.

Is there something in about:config that I can change to avoid this problem?

Is it the same thing as this [archive.netbsd.se]?

It looks like a Windows error rather than a Firefox one - the solution given in the link is a registry edit.

I have a broadband connection so the cause is not the same, neverthless, this is an interesting clue - I may be able to figure it out.

Yep, I've fixed it now.

IE¦Properties¦Connections - NEVER DIAL seems to work.


setting about:config¦network.autodial-helper.enabled=false also seems to work.
