Viewed Pages not visible/do not open in 'Work Offline' mode
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 I get an error message when I try to open a viewed page later; after I have closed the browser ... and started it again in the next session or after restarting the PC. Any pages that I have viewed a few days back are not visible after a few days - Conjectures - Once you close the browser or the OS does it erase the cache on opening next time and where is the cache kept ? Any setting that any of you are aware of ? This one feature nagging me even though OI have completely shifted from IE 6.0 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.View a page 2.Close browser (firefox 1.0) 3.Close system 4.Restart system and open firefox 5.the same page displays a message 'Cannot view in offline mode go online' etc Actual Results: A error/warning message 'Cannot view in offline mode go online' etc Expected Results: It should have opebned the page that I viewed earlier
Basically this feature is very useful and fully functional in IE - All pages are showing this problem. I let the page load completely and then close the browser and open FireFox 1.0 and may be it will open - but once the system is closed none of the pages are visible in 'offline' mode - does it have something with cookie expiry ?

Firefox "offline' mode (which came from Netscape) does not work like the one in Internet Explorer - you can't surf offline. It's only used to prevent the browser from going online, while working on local files. There are no plans to change it, but you're welcome to implement an extension for it.
