I'm connected to the Internet through the office LAN. When I click on a URL, or manually enter a URL, that cannot be found, Mozilla somehow causes the Windows dialer to pop-up. As long as the dialer is up, Mozilla waits. When I click "Cancel", Mozilla shows the usual message about a URL that isn't found. I've used Mozilla versions since 0.98 and this never happenned. The problems only started after I installed 1.1beta (over a normally-working Mozilla 1.0). Note that I did try to disable HTTP pipelining, which doesn't affect the problem. Also I've tried other browsers (IE, Opera) and mail clients on the same machine, and none of them activates the dialer when it can't find a destination. So it seems the problem is specific to Mozilla 1.1beta.
due to fix for bug 93002? (see http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=90726&action=view)

Steve: your comments in bug 93002's design suggest that we should look at a system setting, can you confirm?
