Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616

I recently upgraded to this 1.7 from 1.2 (I think). Now, every time I start
Mozilla, it first puts up a popup window asking if I want to work Online or
Offline. I can't find any way to turn this off. This is so annoying that I've
stopped using Mozilla for now. I do not have the "quick start" option enabled,
and I've never worked "offline". I never saw this with my previous version.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Double-click Mozilla icon to start.
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
See details - always happens.


Expected Results:  
Just start the !#*!#$#@ browser!

If you have mailnews installed:

Edit -> Preferences-> Mail & Newsgroups -> Offline & Disk Space:

When starting up:
Click radio button outside "Remember previous online state"

Does that change anything?

OK yes that was the problem. So my fault, at most it was not copying that
setting from the previous version (was there such an option in 1.2?).
