This isn't a problem or nuisance for gecko.

Gecko dispatches a non-bubbling, not-cancelable error event when there
is for example some sort of network error. Currently that
event implements only normal Event interface, but will soon implement 
also ProgressEvent.
The error event has been there since year 2000.
