Is there a way to simply turn this feature "Offline mode" off? I will go to refresh a page and it will load an old version of the page instead and tell me that it is "Showing offline version". It does this incredibly often, but my internet is working great every time it does it. No other apps showing any evidence of net connection disruption. In many cases I'm listening to Pandora in the background when it does it (wouldn't there be a disruption in audio if I was "offline"?). If I switch over to a different browser, pages load fine, but I'd rather use Firefox.
I'm not sure why this feature seems broken for me, but even if it wasn't broken, there is pretty much no situation where loading an out-of-date version of a page would be useful for me. I'm usually loading weather info, or sports scores, or seeing if there are new posts in a forum thread, or checking tracking to see if a package is any closer, etc. All of which getting a cached version of a page is not only useless but frustrating. Even if there is REALLY a net connection issue, I'd still honestly rather just get a 404 error or whatever telling me it just couldn't load the page. So is there any way to simply disable this feature and solve this problem for me for good? Thank you for your time.
