Description

17 years ago
I use ssh with port forwarding to get access to some of my e-mail accounts. 
Sometimes something bad happens and I want to log out of one of the shell
windows; but since I'm still connected to the corresponding mail server, ssh
won't let me exit.  If there was a disconnect button for disconnecting from a
given account in Mail/News, then I could disconnect and move on...without having
to shut down Mozilla and restart it (which would require logging into my other
Mail/News accounts that were previously open).

how about using the disconnect / offline button in the lower right hand corner
of the window. Toggle offline try to do something then go back online.

as a workaround, killing ssh (ctrl-c) when it's waiting for forwarded
connections to die is just as effective as having moz kill the connection.

The online/offline icon in the File menu or the lower right corner will
dis/connect mozilla from the network.
