I have an manual configuration connection. (through /etc/rc.local). Its wireless. I do not use nm-applet.
How will this be resolved?
Can I make nm-applet think that I have a internet connection?
To solve this problem, I did this.
And it worked fineCode:sudo apt-get remove network-manager
Firefox now starts in online mode again!!
Really tho, Firefox should not rely on Network manager for a connection. Nor any app really.
