Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447364
firefox starts in offline mode after reboot
Last modified: 2018-04-11 04:18:55 EDT
Description of problem:
Firefox unable to browse web because "work offline" is checked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora 9 3.0-0.60
always after a fresh boot
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot system
3. open firefox
unable to open web pages due to "working offline"
open web pages normally?
This could be related to general Network Manager weirdness with respect to wired
I have this same problem. Firefox always defaults to offline mode. This could be
due to network manager thinking I'm offline as I use a static IP for wired
connection and NM doesn't understand this.

Yes, this is the diagnosis. Take a look at the upstream bug linked in this bug
report for more info.
a) for the workaround, follow the advice of Dan Williams at
b) this is not firefox, but Network Manager bug -- firefox just does here what
it is supposed to do, IMHO.
c) I think it should be CLOSED/UPSTREAM, as it is being resolved upstream, and
possible fix will come to use as well.
If you disagree, please, reopen, but against NetworkManager.
