firefox goes into work off line mode and will not connect to the internet

Posted

Firefox randomly disconnects from the internet. The work off line option is somehow checked and when un- checked Firefox will still not connect. A re-boot of the computer most often solves the problem. This is new and I have not made any changes recently. Running Fox 3.6.3

Try going to Tools--Addons--Extensions and disable your extensions one by one to see if one of them is causing the problem.

Thank you Moses. I had three add ons that I wasn"t using and after removing them I have not seen the problem again. Thanks again for your help.
