BRAVO! Firefox is my new nominee for a Darwin award.

I have this thing called a kiosk with a web-app in the background of the
box. It has no network connectivity - it doesn't need to, there is this
strange thing on Linux since like 1970 called loopback (for the Firefox
developers, this can be found at http://127.0.0.1).

Of course Firefox wants to be in "online" mode to connect to loopback.

Did anyone consider this? Please, just get rid of this insane feature.
