I can't find anywhere to disable this, but obviouslly I need to in order to be able to continue working. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
It's in the release notes (http://www.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla1.2b/) how to do that: "For security reasons, Mozilla does not allow connections to certain ports. To override this on a per-port basis, add a comma separated list of ports to defaults/all.js (in your Mozilla installation directory). Note that this pref only works in the all.js file in the Mozilla installation directory and it affects all users of the installation. It does not work if you add it to the prefs.js or user.js files in your personal profile directory. For example, to unblock ports 1, 3, and 7, use the following line: pref("network.security.ports.banned.override", "1,3,7");"
v - please don't ask those questions in bugzilla since this is a bug database and no support database. You must do this before you file a bug : a) read the release notes b) query for existing bugs You would find the solution with a + b (search with 1080 in the summary)
See http://www.mozilla.org/projects/netlib/PortBanning.html for more explanation why this was done.
