Basically, if the user disables their internet connection or loses it, we should automagically work offline. Colin indicated that it is in fact doable.
Firefox 3 on Linux already does this.

This does not block the final release of Firefox 3.
Remove [Mac] tag, switch Platform from PC -> Mac which shows "Mac" in the search results and thus does the same thing
Whoops, noticed reed did it, putting it back.
I just tested latest trunk build (Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.4; en-US; rv:1.9.1b2pre) Gecko/20081113 Minefield/3.1b2pre ID:20081113020254) on OS X 10.4. On that system this bug is invalid, Firefox switches to offline mode when I a) turn of air port b) turn of access point c) unplug the cable. Probably, as Reed Loden mentioned in comment 1, the linux fix works also on the BSD code of OS X or this bug is duplicate of some other I am not aware of. If anyone wanted to detect there is not an internet connection even a local network connection is fine then it IMHO is impossible or pretty difficult task.
WFM, since don't know what fixed this.
