Why is my new update of 10.0 opening with Work Offline as the default? In about:config network.manage-offline-status is set to false.

Why is my new update of 10.0 opening with Work Offline as the default? In about:config network.manage-offline-status is set to false. It does this every time I start a new Firefox process when no other Firefox processes are running.

-> Offline Mode

Check and tell if its working.

I have to manually uncheck File > Work Offline or I will get a prompt to "try again" with Firefox enabling Work Online. This SOMETIMES happens when I start a Firefox process with no other Firefox processes running during continuous computer sessions but ALWAYS happens when starting Firefox after computer boot-up or wake-up out of sleep. If I open Firefox after a boot or wake-up and immediately open about:config and look at network.manage-offline-status it will be set to TRUE. I can manually set it to False but it is somehow resetting to True at some point. Evidently network.manage-offline-status is NOT a static parameter but one that can be dynamically changed by who-knows-what. It's very frustrating to have to go through this process of toggling Work Offline. I NEVER had this issue with previous Firefox versions. BTW - I'm on a MacBook Pro running Lion 10.7.2.

I am also having this problem.....everytime I boot up my Mac, Firefox is set to work offline.

This problem has only been happening with my update of FF10.0.

None of my previous updates had this.

It is indeed, very very annoying!

PLEASE SOMEBODY AT MOZILLA SORT THIS OUT!

If you have already unselected Worfk Offline but Firefox keeps reverting it back to the Work Offline mode, then perform the suggestions mentioned in the following articles:

Check and tell if its working.

Neither worked. I started Firefox in safe mode out of a cold computer boot and it still came up with Work Offline checked. There was no user.js file and in prefs.js the "Locked" box was not checked.

Changed both proxy and firewall settings - nothing worked - still reverts to Work Offline. Is there someone at Mozilla that can look into this?

Make sure that you are not running Firefox in Private Browsing - Use Firefox without saving history mode.

  • You enter Private Browsing mode if you select: Firefox > Options > Privacy > History: Firefox will: "Never Remember History"
  • To see all History and Cookie settings, choose: Firefox > Options > Privacy, choose the setting Firefox will: Use custom settings for history
  • Deselect: [ ] "Always use Private Browsing mode"

Check and tell if its working.
