I think this is also in Mozilla as well, but is there any particular reason why I can not make HTTP connections to port 87 (eg. http://omega:87)? Is it possible to disable the error popup and just connect regardless?

Apparently it's a 'well-known port', used for private terminal links. Not sure why it was blocked though.

There is a way to override this by putting a line in user.js. Someone else will have to point you to the correct setting.

Try this:

user_pref("network.security.ports.banned.override", "87");

No guaranty that it works though. The list of ports is comma-separated, if you want to add more than one.
