Hey, here's another problem that I've seen. I installed 10.2 on my
mom's 'puter and each time Firefox is started, it starts in "offline"
mode. That is damned irritationg to me and somewhat confusing to her.

Mihamina suggested "You should just make the Firefox home page either a
blank page or http://localhost/ (if a web server is set up) or file:/// as
last choice."

That might work, but since Mom is dialed in and on the net before Firefox
is started, she expects it to be in online mode and the home page to be
what she wants it to be.

Can someone explain why Firefox stays offline even when a dialup connection
is made?

Roger's idea of "look in the user settings folder for the prefs.js file and
edit the line "user_pref("browser.offline", false);"
might be the best route to follow if, in fact, the setting will stay.

Thanks for the help,
