Hi,

whenever I start Firefox on my Ubuntu Notebook it starts in Offline Mode if I am connected to the internet with ppp and a mobile phone. If the same machine is connected with Ethernet, Firefox starts in Online mode. I did not yet find a way to have Firefox start in Online mode if on the road, which is annoying. 

I guess that Firefox tries to perform some 'smart' detection of whether the machine is online or not, which fails for that particular connection method.
