Hallo, I have been using Ubuntu since 6.06 and for the last year I have to struggle with annoiyng problem of Firefox/Pidgin having problems to go online after connection was initiated by PPPD. I already know it is a problem of those applications checking with NetworkManager, which does not recognize connection, made by pppd.

I am using TMobile 4G Combi Card (PCMCIA).

There is simple workaround in Firefox (in about:config set toolkit.networkmanager.online as false), but there is no such a thing for Pidgin.

Can you help me?
Thanks a lot.
