Cure is simple: quit using Firefox entirely.  And in my case, quit using 
Kubuntu, Ubuntu entirely.  While configuring my router, firefox 3, with 
latest update, Firefox goes off line. completely screws router configuration.  
this in a system I had selected to install FF2 not FF3.  Who chose to force 
FF3 on me?  FF or FFX was not chosen, FF2 was chosen.
Why does update to FF3 completely screw FF2?  Why can I not revert to FF2?  
Some damned conspiracy? Or what?

My bug was not duplicate of any other bug.  My bug was fact that Firefox has 
an off line mode, a useless damned off line mode that serves only 2 purposes; 
1 to require us to select on line mode, 2 to drive us away from use of 
Firefox completely.

Stupid programmers have required me to leave Kubuntu, to move to Debian for 
above and following reasons:
System 1 monitor resolution can not be left at 1200 X 800 on one computer if 
external monitor is connected.  Externa monitor is useless due to stupid 
changes of resolution repeated at each update.
System 2 monitor resolution can not be left at native 1920 X 1200 but must be 
repaired after updates.
Kubuntu randomly choses to not allow access to USB drives.
Konsole can not be set to 111 X 72, black text on white.  Each start of 
Konsole is small white font on black screen, useless to my vision.  WTF, why 
offer settings that are ignored???
System notifications can not be set OFF and stay off.  Some damned programmer 
has determined I must have loud noises at each failed search, each failure of 
any sort and to hell with my selection of silence.  WTF, why offer settings 
that are ignored???

This  off line on line mode selection is just one symptom of stupid 
programmers that want it their own stupid way and to hell with users.

Kubuntu is diseased with stupid programmers that require monitor power off to 
be at 45 minutes and will not abide my selection of power off at 3 minutes.

firefox off line mode is just one of many symptoms of problem.
I do not know if problem is Kubuntu, KDE or Ubuntu,  I do know I am sick of 
it.  Is the programmers goal to force me back to windiz or to force me to 
learn every bit of Linux configurations to keep my setting intact, to keep my 
computers from farting at me at every failed action?  Must I learn to hand 
configure X11 to keep screens at native resolution?

Who gains what from changing my screens from native resolution with each 
update?
Who gains what from switching on loud offensive noises with each update?
Who gains what from changing permissions to access USB and external HDDs with 
each update?
Hell will be full of lawyers and programmers.
