Hi !
My O/S is Win XP Pro. In Admin mode whenever I open an offline file in Firefox 3 browser, the internet connection starts to connect even though I am not connected to the internet. I have broadband internet connection. This is very irritating and does not go away if i click "cancel". Can anyone please let me know how to fix this?
In User mode however , there is no auto internet connection.
Thanks!

If you have broadband...you are always connected to the Internet.

If you use a browser...browsers are tools for accessing websites.

If the computer is dialing anything...then you have your system configured as if you have a dialup connection, not a broadband connection.

The simple fix I can think of for this (in addition to the one above)...disable the system's internal modem. Broadband does not use this at all and it's totally unnecessary if a user has a broadband connection. Broadband connections utilize a NIC, not the modem of the system.
