User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008072820 Firefox/3.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008072820 Firefox/3.0.1

If you connect to the internet using good-ol fashion iwconfig (not network manager) on linux, firefox complains that you don't have internet and keeps you in offline mode. I have damn internet! There should be a way to override offline mode and force it to connect, even if it thinks there is no internet.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open firefox
2. use iwconfig (not network manager) to get internet
3. wonder why it's not working (even after firefox restart)
Actual Results:  
no internet

Expected Results:  
internet

google: "network manager firefox offline", 1st hit
set browser.offline-apps.notify to false
