User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Problem was on a friends computer - user agent unknown

When the clients runs Firefox (1.0), their computer connects to the internet,
but Firefox tries to access the page before the connection handshake is
complete. Therefore, it says that it can't find the page. Once you refresh, it
loads without a problem and continues like it should.
This is fixable by changing the value "network.http.request.max-start-delay" in
about:config to about 1000, but it would be better if it was set to this on
default. Also, it might be better if there was a value that dictates the delay
for the <i>first</i> request in a session.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Firefox on a computer that needs to dial to reach the internet.
2.Go through the appropriate connection procedure.
3.The problem occurs

Actual Results:  
Firefox stated that it could not find the domain name

Expected Results:  
Firefox should have loaded the page

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

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
