    If I remember correctly there is an option if firefox's settings (edit->prefrences) that lets you tell it to start in offline mode, try looking for that.

    Please open Firefox and type into address bar about:config
    if is the first time you are using about:config on Firefox, a warning window come in front of you, please confirm the "promise".

    Then search ( type the parameter name into the "filter row" field ) for the Firefox config param named:

    network.online

    double click on the filtered row and set it to true

    Quit and restart Firefox

    Then problem is not with Firefox, but with network-manager.
