Dial up connection box not showing in Firefox

When i click on Firefox it dials up straight away .I want the dialup box to appear and then click on dial as it is a more secure method of connection.

I suspect that firefox picks up your Windows Settings for this.
Try firing up Internet Options from Windows Control Panel or - Ugh - starting up IExplorer and setting options from there.
Get to 'Connection' and set your options from the tab shown. Use the not so plain English option of:

Only connect when not working off-line ??

I think you have this set to

'Connect Automatically'

No, Internet Explorer is not set to connect automatically.
