bug 61098 fix "Prevent...creating addi. dialogs" should also also be shown when showing un-associated protocol dialog.

This one of the issue at "Last Measure" website in Bug 550196 

When there is an un-associated protocol a dialog popup saying  
  "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, 
   because the protocol (ed2k) isn't associated with any program."

And that site opens many....

**** ONLY WAY OUT is kill firefox from task manager
**** additionally it start subscribing to NEWS GROUPS
**** so your MAIL CLIENT opens

**** SEE WARING ABOVE !!! - http://bit.ly/b81Sjx  *****
Could someone please mark this as blocking bug 616843, in which I'm trying to list all dialogs that should be tab-modal?

So this applies to not only unknown protocol, but also malformed URL (e.g. "http://" or "about:foo"), right?

And when "browser.xul.error_pages.enabled" is false, all the network errors can cause something like attachment 479286 [details].
JFYI, both bug 382702 and bug 312680 are fixed. i.e. No error code would generate a dialog unless a user intentionally sets false to "browser.xul.error_pages.enabled".

MarcoM:

If this bug still bothers you, you should file a new bug or change the summary to: "When error pages are disabled, error dialogs should be tab-modal" or something. Anyway, it should cover all the network errors rather than just protocol errors.
