User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.10) Gecko/20071015 SUSE/2.0.0.10-0.2 Firefox/2.0.0.10
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.10) Gecko/20071015 SUSE/2.0.0.10-0.2 Firefox/2.0.0.10

When Firefox automatically goes offline because NetworkManager says there's
no network, and then you try to visit a web site, Firefox gives you an error
saying 'Uncheck "Work Offline" in the File menu, then try again.' This isn't
really an accurate/useful message in that case. It should say something about
you not being connected to the network instead.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open firefox
2. Disconnect network
3. Try visiting another page
Actual Results:  
The "uncheck 'work offline'" message is displayed.

Expected Results:  
A message stating that the network is down, etc.

The behaviour is different for me in Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)


When I disconnect from the network, I get
"Server not found         
Firefox can't find the server at bugzilla.mozilla.org." as an error.
This bug was originally reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.6 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
