Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.5

I can connect by way of dial-up mode with Gnome-ppp to my U.S.Robotics 5637 usb
56k modem to the web and my Acer Aspier 5315 laptop.  Once connected, however,
I start FireFox and get the above message.  When I go to the "file" menu and drag
down to the "Work offline" box (which starts out being checked) and I uncheck the box.
Firefox works well, as it is doing now, through my dial-up Connection.
