When starting Mozilla with the turbo option, it tries to load a URL namely www.mozilla.org This is not so good if you have mozilla -turbo in the windows startup folder, and a dial-up connection. Either it throws a error dialog box telling that the URL cannot be reached, or it tries to dial -up BUILD-ID: 2001052304
Can confirm this happening on Win98 2001060804 Didn't notice it at work because of the LAN, but if I use it at home it tries to connect me at startup.
worksforme W98 2001060703 mozilla simply starts running in the background, no instance of the window itself.
You wouldn't actually see the window. It is hidden, but that doesn't stop it from trying to load a URL. What happens for me is that the Dial Up Networking Connection box comes up trying to connect to the internet when starting server mode. At work, we are always connected, but I checked our proxy logs, and my computer accesses mozilla.org when i start turbo mode. (I imagine it would be whatever your home page is.) I understand that this will be fixed shortly when law checks in the fix that will prevent the *whole* hidden window from being cached, and make it just the chrome and bulk code.
yep, the bug report is that the *hidden* tries to load the homepage, thus triggering the dial-up connection
