User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0
Build ID: 20150630154324

Steps to reproduce:


Story:
I am running Windows 7 and I have a buggy driver. It probably forgets to closes connections. After a while, some system limit is hit.

Many others apps give me the error "No buffer space available" when I try to initiate a new connection at that time.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
-starve network resources.
-open an url


Actual results:

When opening a new URL in an existing tab, it will also turn into the blank tab.


Expected results:

Firefox should display an appropriate error dialog.
