the pages that contain ads, Mozilla trys to dialup to my ISP and connect to the

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

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.

Is there any way to send confirmation on this bug, as it is becoming VERY annoying.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

This bug has been automatically resolved after a period of inactivity (see above
