Re: Firefox off-line in core 9



Thanks. Good observation. That worked perfectly. I've had to take NetworkManager off many machines as it messes up the resolv.conf file for static addresses. Apparently a recent update not only installed NetworkManager but also turned it on when it had previously been off.

Since upgrading to core 9 from core 8, my laptops start up firefox in

into on-line mode, but only for the session.

I discovered that too.  It's something to do with Network Manager.  If you
don't need NM, turn it off and the problem will go away.

Run "firefox network manager" through Google and you'll find all sorts of
write-up about this.

On the good news side, I have F10-beta installed on my laptop, and use NM on
that, and haven't seen this issue there yet.
