I just tried to reproduce:

Just let the very first DNS request for josm.openstreetmap.org
fail/timeout - You get a popup "Network errors occured"
and "Change proxy setting". This is abolute nonesense. I dont
use any proxy - A simple DNS query failed - Thats life. I might
even be offline - that would be perfectly allright.

I could use josm afterwards pressing cancel on the "Change proxy
settings" but i have situation where this does not work and
i cant up-/download data.
