    Work offline in firefox?

    Whenever I start firefox it is always set into 'work offline' mode, and I have to click on file, then uncheck work offline so it will actually connect to the internet.

    Is there any way to make it so that it is always in work online mode, so I can browse as soon as I load it up?

    Thanks.

    Hi Mashy,

    Yeah, that's annoying isn't it!

    Don't despair, this thread should solve your problem, it did mine.

    Post back whether that works or not for you. I hope it does.

    Yes!
    If you are not using Network Manager. Remove it. That's causing the offline mode.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge network-manager network-manager-gnome

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...22&postcount=6 works for me whereas fixes involving pref.js and about:config did not.

    Everything else keeps working after removing NM? If so, what does NM do?

    Thanks.
