User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6 (ax) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6 (ax) In the "Bookmarks" menu, I have a submenu called "Typical web pages" which contains 16 bookmarks, and every morning I choose "Open in Tabs" at the bottom of that submenu in order to open all 16 web pages, each in its own tab. One of the bookmarks points to "192.168.1.101" on my local network. (Actually, the exact URL is "http://192.168.1.101/wiki/index.php/Main_Page".) When I choose "Open in Tabs" while that computer doesn't exist or is off, Firefox creates the 16 tabs and starts loading them, but after a couple of seconds it stops loading all the tabs and displays a dialog saying "The connection was refused when attempting to contact 192.168.1.101." None of the tabs continues to load while this dialog is being displayed. It would be preferable if the other tabs would continue to load in the background while this dialog is being displayed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a submenu in the "Bookmarks" menu that includes 16 URLs, including one that points to a numeric IP address that doesn't exist. 2. Choose "Open in Tabs" from that submenu. 3. Observe. Actual Results: A dialog box appears saying "The connection was refused when attempting to contact 192.168.1.101." As soon as this dialog box appears, all the other tabs stop loading in the background. Expected Results: The other tabs should continue loading in the background. The computer at 192.168.1.101 didn't exist in these cases because it gets its IP address via DHCP and got assigned a different IP address.
