Error 651 :The Modem (Connecting Device) has Reported an Error

Today while connecting my laptop to the Internet I received an error message Error 651: The Modem (or other Connecting Device) has Reported an Error. I use Tata Photon Plus to connect my Windows 7 laptop to the Internet. Network Connection Prompt lets me either redial or cancel it. I tried redial option but again I got the same error 651.

They have reduced the time interval between two Firefox releases and that forced me to adjust to my customization. I use the browsers in my own customized way but whenever I update the current installation, I lose the customization. However, it always looks for new updates and forces me to install the latest release. So I have disabled the automatic check for latest release by Firefox on my computer.
