Please don't CC 21 people at random...
You should only be CCing someone if you know they are or need to be involved.

For what it's worth, I could not reproduce this.  Unplug stops it; plugging back in continues the loop rather quickly.  (3rc2 on Linux)  What small delay I get is just my OS reconnecting things.

Is a sporadic dropped connection + Flash issue really even something that Firefox can do to much about, anyway?

Aside from the lack of follow up here, and the fact that I'm not convinced this is a Mozilla issue, the testcase is a 404 error. -> INCOMPLETE
