I am using Ubuntu 8.04.1 with Firefox 3.03.  Firefox continues to open
in off line mode in spite of using Work Arounds 1 + 2 as recommended by
bug report 191889.

The problem is caused by my use of a USR5610c internal hardware modem.
The connection comes on automatically at boot and works very well.  The
modem, to be configured successfully, needed to be configured in
pppconfig first and then in the network manager second.  As soon as
network manager was configured the modem dialed and connected
successfully and has done so ever since.

The only real problem connected with this is that Firefox does not come
up online.  Yes, I can live with this.  It is a problem that I feel
should be addressed in the interest of those of us that unfortunately
are stuck with a dial up connection.  I can understand that dialup is
going extinct but is not there yet, particularly in remote areas.  I am
in rural Montana, USA.  Our only other option is a satellite connection
witch is a little pricey for a ranch hand.

I really have no idea what package this is related to.  I am green as grass with Linux in general and Ubuntu is particular.
