Mozilla input and autocompletion fails when ip address changes

Description of problem:
I'm running mozilla on a laptop. When I suspend/resume and get a new IP
address, mozilla stops accepting input. If I type C-L and start typing a URL in
the window, it will fail to autocomplete, and if I hit 'return' it will fail to
load the page. Simiarly, if I type C-Shift-L to enter a URL via the dialog, I
cannot hit 'enter', or click on "open" or "cancel" -- the dialog will just sit
there and mozilla will not do anything.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.suspend the laptop
3.resume the laptop in a location where I will obtain a different IP address
4. try to use the mozilla that was running before you suspended
Actual Results: I cannot enter new URLs or autocomplete
Expected Results: Mozilla should have continued to work properly. I needed to
C-q (kill) and restart mozilla for it to work. This is annoying when I want to
keep pages up across laptop movements.
Are you sure that this is related to the change in IP address and not something
going wrong with the resume?
Yes, because if I resume back to the same IP address it works just fine.
mozilla itself couldn't handle change of IP address anyway. anyhow this was
probably fixed long ago.
