        If Firefox 3.6.x is the default system browser and the following option is checked:

        Edit | Preferences | Advanced | Network | Settings... | "Use system proxy settings"

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        1. set Firefox 3.6.x (it seems to occur with 3.x, too) as the system default browser
        2. check the following option in Firefox:
        Edit | Preferences | Advanced | Network | Settings... | "Use system proxy settings"
        3. try to start an application through Java Web Start, for instance:
        http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorialJWS/uiswing/learn/ex6/CelsiusConverter.jnlp

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        The application starts
        ACTUAL -
        The application does not start, an error is given by the Java Web Start client.
