I have checked the setting via control panel > administartive tool > Services and checked the three components that are set to manual. I want to stop Firefox auto dialling so that I can choose the dial up setting it connects to. Can you help? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.

I have even tried to reinstal Firefox but this did not help.
open "about:config" (as URL), type "autodial" in the filter box and change "network.autodial-helper.enabled" from true to false. Please ask in the http://www.mozillazine.org Forums if you need End-User support -> invalid (no support here)

I think the user was wondering why firefox isn't listening to the windows thing in control panel that sets wether IE auto dials. Does anybody with more knowledge than me of this know if there is a way to make FF listen to this, and if not a small mention in the manual wouldn't be a bad thing. Anyway as said in the above comment, you need to type "abouot:config" into the address (url) bar and then set the option mentioned.
its actually a dupe, and we should respect the OS pref if available.
