Firefox (Bon Echo) not display when network setting is incorrect

I'm running Haiku on VMWare. The VMWare setting for Network Adapter is BRIDGED, but I can not connect to Internet (just ping to ADSL modem is OK). When I start Firefox (Bon Echo), it can not display. Just the title and the outter frame of the Bon Echo window. I just want to read Be Book, but it is impossible. When I change the VMWare network setting to use NAT, I can use Bon Echo (Firefox) to browse the Internet. Now, I switched back to BRIDGED Network Adapter, and can not connect to Internet again, but still can read Be Book. So, I think there is something in Firefox that involved with the network setting, that thing MUST INITATE with NETWORK SETTING is OK. This was test with Haiku hrev28827, hrev28847 and Senryu Haiku hrev28815, with VMWare on Intel Core 2 Duo E2160.

In bridging mode the virtual guest (Haiku in this case) will be a full participant in the network you have. It will have to be configured accordingly, either by a DHCP server in the network or manually. When in NAT mode, VMWare will provide the DHCP service and will provide Haiku with the usable IP/gateway/DNS addresses.

It looks like you're having DNS issues when running in bridged mode. Make sure that you have a valid DNS address under Haiku when in bridged mode. Also make sure that you don't have any overlapping IP addresses and that you're in the same subnet as the rest of your network. When running in bridged mode you'd configure your Haiku guest similar to the host your running it on, except for giving it its own IP that is not used in the network yet.

Please tell whether you're configuring manually or use the DHCP on the network.
