that's your OS setup, has nothing to do with Mozilla.

well, my OS is setup to only dial a connection when I tell it to. Mozilla is the only browser out of the 4 I use for testing that does it (Mozilla, Netscape 7, Opera, and IE). It only started doing this recently too, maybe since 1.4rc1 or possibly sometime in 1.3.

I have exactly the same problem with Firefox 0.9.2 on my laptop. Laptop is using WIN XP Pro. This DOES NOT happen with my Mozilla 1.6 or with MS Exploder. This ALWAYS happens after it first opens and I try to go to whatever is the first site I wish to visit. This problem does not happen on my desktop. O/S is WIN XP Home.
I've heard other reports of this sort of problem. It seems that WinXP may store the information under different keys than other versions of Windows. And moreover there can be conflicting rules defined in the Windows registry. It may be the case that Mozilla should look at the rules in a different order. You should find the same behavior with Mozilla 1.7 and Firefox 0.9. If not, then please let us know. Also, can you please report the values of the following registry keys: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\RAS Autodial\Default HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\RAS Autodial\Default Thanks!
I am running W2K and am having the same problem, where Firefox tries to dial using my ISP connection, eventhough I have a LAN connection to the internet. This does not happen with IE. Details: OS: Win 2K SP4 Firefox: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
