User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030507

If you download all of your mail and then disconnect (by pulling the modem cable
to your laptop) and then start reading your mail.  If you encounter one of these
damnable email ads that wants to access the internet,  you can (depending on the
email) get an endless series of error messages saying essentially that the email
cannot access the internet.  In this situation,  you are NOT allowed to click on
the disconnect icon and (what really SHOULD happen is that the
connected/disconnected icon should track the actual connected status of the
computer.)

What I often have to do is to exit mosilla, come back into the browser,  click
the disconnect icon,  then go to mail and delete the offending email.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.see above.
3.



Expected Results:  
Allowed you to delete the offending email even if you could not reconnect to the
internet.

confirming, though these messages are probably coming from the browser/http 
code, so there's not much I can do about it.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:2.0b2pre) Gecko/20100701 Lightning/1.1a1pre SeaMonkey/2.1a3pre - Build ID: 20100701101320

Tried the following today:
1. Disconnect the modem (not by pulling the cable but by running "ifdown dsl0").
2. Try to view an already downloaded email with lots of images in it.

Results:
Each image is replaced by a grey rectangle with a "broken image" icon at top left (except one which displays normally, possibly loaded from cache).
No error messages (no XUL page, no popups).

3. Reconnect (by "ifup dsl0")
4. View => Reload on the message mentioned above at step 2.

Results:
All images display normally.

Conclusion:
I'm closing this bug WORKSFORME. Feel free to REOPEN if you can reproduce this bug in SeaMonkey 2.0.6 or later (and paste your User-Agent string, as found at the bottom of the page displayed by "Help => About SeaMonkey", on top of your bug comment, as I did on top of this one).
