2003081004 trunk When attempting to connect to a site that is not answering SYN requests, if you press the stop button the UI indicates that Mozilla has stopped trying to contact the site. However, if you watch your TCP stack activity, Mozilla continues to try to reach the site - opening new ports and sending new SYN requests - until the normal TCP timeout. Expected: When you press the stop button it should actually terminate the network activity instead of just hiding it from the user.

FWIW this is still an issue with Firefox 30. I null-routed Mozilla update servers on my router about the time version 30 came out, so that's the latest version I'm willing to use. I don't know if it was fixed since then.
