How do I automatically connect to my ISP when I launch Firefox like Internet Explorer does (Firefox is set as my default browser)?

When Microsoft Internet Explorer was my browser the dial-up connection screen to my internet service provider would come up automatically when I launched the browser.

Now that I have made Mozilla Firefox my default browser this no longer happens. Launching Firefox results in an error message which says the website cannot be found. I then have to launch Internet Explorer, connect to my ISP, close Internet Explorer, then launch Firefox. This is a bit tedious. Can Firefox perform the same connect to ISP action automatically just like Internet Explorer does? If so, how do I activate this?

Thanks
