This Also in happened in 3.0.4. It makes no difference whether 1. tabs were open with webpages when I last quit Ff 2. I start a fresh session 3. the session is started by Thunderbird. Unchecking Work Offline only works for the present session, at next start I have to uncheck 'Work Offline' again and initiate a reload for each page. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start Firefox Actual Results: 'Work Offline' is checked. Expected Results: 'Work Offline' unchecked. I am connected to a GPRS (cell phone) network through a HUAWEI dongle to a visible BTS (on top of the nearest mountain) some 600 m (1,800 feet) away, but *e.g.* thunderbird has no problems detecting that the connection is open. There is a workaround, but it is very annoying to be forced to waste time *every* time Ff is started - imagine 15 open tabs and each has to be restarted.
