build 2001072003, Win95/98:
1. Enter some Bugzilla bug report page
2. Go offline
3. Press "Commit"

A dialog box warning says : The page you are trying to view contains POSTDATA
that has expired from cache..." and asks for confirmation. It is confusing and
one can't get out of this unless he remembers to come back in online mode.
<erasing earlier comments> Ok, confirming this.  I just went offline and was
unable to submit this form with an alternate set of comments.

Over to form submission.  Platform -> All, OS -> All

Should we change the text to warn the user that he's in offline mode?

This also occurs with expired POST cache.

You should be able to hit cancel, hit back, and have it skip the bad page and go
to the one before it.

BTW - why does the POST cache expire so quickly?

Notice that NS 6.2 does skip the offending page. I'm wondering if older versions
of Mozilla did. This might be a regression.

Here's a related one:

1. Go offline.
2. Visit Google (www.google.com), forgetting that you're offline
   (in the case, I was dialed in but forgot the browser was offline)
3. Browser has loaded cached page from Google
4. Type in search terms and press Submit. You get the submitting form
   data over unencrypted connection warning, but nothing happens.

Mozilla should warn users when submitting forms offline that the browser is
offline  and that form submissions will not work.
The patch in bug 45421 fixed this.
