View Full Version : [CLOSED]WTF Firefox 'Work Offline'

23 Jul 2010, 4:58 AM
every couple of days while ONLY ever working with the code my Firefox will just switch to offline mode.
This never occurs when browsing the web endlessly. Anyone have any idea if there is some way in heck that JS can cause FF to go offline?

Take a look at the StayInOnlineMode add-on. I'll not post a link here as it'll be in "moderation" for the next few hours.


Firefox 3.5+ might start in offline mode if there is no net connection available. While being in online mode even short connection interruptions can also cause Firefox to switch to offline mode. If you frequently run web applications unattended, then unexpected switching to offline mode can easily break the workflow. This small addon forces Firefox to stay online while still allowing a user to manually switch to offline mode if required.
