That situation only can happen (in Firefox) when the js script calls the 
Close() method and the readyState == CONNECTING.
When the connection can't be established for any reason the WebSocket 
object stays in the CONNECTING
readyState and doesn't dispatch any events. That behavior is because of 
the section "6.1. Client-initiated closure"
of the WebSocket protocol spec, in order to prevent script to 
distinguish any of the situations listed there.
