Firefox connection to localhost domains is sporadic when there is no internet connection

I quite often do development work on the train, and disable wifi on my laptop. When I've done this, I quite often have to refresh a localhost domain several times before Firefox loads it correctly. It will either say it can't connect, or will load the page without any CSS. A further refresh will work, but this process always continues. Works fine in Chrome.

I'd appreciate any pointers to fixing this! Thanks

Please disregard - turns out it was uBlock Origin causing this issue. Disabling the extension fixes the problem.
