Hey all. I've got a VX9900/enV phone, I've got the broadband service, and I've got WVDial set up, I think.

I can get Pidgin online, I can even connect to a MUCK I check out via a client in WINE. However, Firefox stays in Offline Mode.

What should I check out?

Welp, that was it. I'm now tethered. Thanks, I feel like a horse's ***. :lolflag:

I was digging through the Edit -> preferences menu for work offline and couldn't find it. Figures it was elsewhere.
