    firefox opens in Work Offline Mode

    With F9
    Firefox has suddenly begun opening in offline mode. I can go online by unselecting this feature but this behaviour is new.
    This may have just started with the 3.02 update but I'm not completely sure about that---just in the last week for sure.
    I can't find preference settings for this.
    Is anyone else having this problem or know how to fix it?

    It's not a network problem. Firefox opens in OFFLINE mode. THe network is fine.
    The problem is that Firefox opens now with "WORK OFFLINE" selected by default.
    I didn't change any settings to cause this to happen so I am assuming that the lastest firefox update did it.

    about :config in firefox and
    toolkit.networkmanager.disable
    browser.offline; false.

    I solved this way.

    Thanks. I'll try that.
    There is also an extension that forces ONLINE mode.
