Firefox will hang after start with Nortel VPN client with auto connect enabled.  I have to kill the the firefox process through task manager in order to continue.  Firefox will work fine if I kill the autoexec process which is the process that activated the Nortel auto connect feauture.  
All systems that are experiencing this problem had a 2.x version of Firefox installed and did not experience this issue with the Nortel Adapter.  I have experienced this issue with all versions of 3.x firefox.  All systems that have a Nortel VPN client installed with the auto connect feauture enabled on the VPN are experiencing this problem.  I hope this can be resolved very soon.  I have tried this on several versions of XP SP2, Sp3.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Nortel VPN client with Auto connect enabled
2.Launch Firefox 3.x
Actual Results:  
This will cause firefox to hang everytime

Expected Results:  
This will cause firefox to hang everytime
