	I'm getting confused as between machines, which is which; but 
Firefox has come up with another little nasty trick on at least two of 
them : when it does launch, it does so in offline mode -- and then 
complains because it can't refresh various sites.

	Surely there has to be a setting somewhere for whether to launch 
in online or offline mode? I haven't seen it, much less changed it on 
purpose ...
