Solution for Firefox 3 Always Starting in Offline Mode Under Ubuntu


Ubuntu Hardy Heron is my primary operating system. Although in general I think it is a great operating system, there was one little annoyance that was bothering me. Firefox 3 always started in offline mode.

Every time I opened Firefox I had to go to the File menu, and uncheck the "Work Offline" checkbox, very annoying.

Well fortunately I found a solution. In order to avoid this from happening, we need to type "about:config", then set the toolkit.networkmanager.disable preference to true. Problem solved.
