If you are in offline mode and are viewing a page that is stored on your hard drive and on that page there is an image or images that are not stored in your cache then Netscape will complain that it cannot connectt o the network and tell you to go into online mode to connect to it. I find this message annoying and when you are in offline mode instead of doing this what it should do is use a small "not available while offline" type icon if you are in offline mode and cannot access an image of other file while offline. This way you know there is a problem but don't have to get that annoying prompt everytime. Int he case of an html file when you click on a link to it (if that's what you are doing) then it could do a simply "not available offline" sign next to the select hand. If you try to open it with the location box or "open page" then it could do the prompt that the page is not available offline.
this is an enhancement request
Changing to networking component and reassigning.
