Default Firefox is currently in offline mode and can't browse the Web

I installed a new Gentoo installation, and now when I open Firefox I get:


Firefox is currently in offline mode and can't browse the Web.

The browser is operating in its offline mode and cannot connect to the
requested item.

* Is the computer connected to an active network?
* Place the browser in online mode and try again.


My computer is surely connected to an active network, I can wget without
problems, and of course I can go to the File menu and switch off the
stupid "Offline" mode, but I don't want to do that every time I start
Firefox, so why does he put me in this mode in the first place? What can
I do to have Firefox start normally, like it does in Debian?

It's a pity that Linux applications start to behave more and more like
MS-Windows ones - they do what THEY think is best instead of letting the
user do what he wants. I want to browse the web and I am online, while
the stupid program thinks I am offline, and prevents me to browse the
web.

Hmm, I don't know, there is nothing like that in flags:

przehyba ~ # emerge -pv mozilla-firefox

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Should I, or shouldn't I add any flag?

No, I don't:

przehyba ~ # emerge --search networkmanager | egrep "*|installed"

Lots of discussion about this annoyance, but no definitive solution.
Seems to depend on the distro, so I would like pointers specifically
about fixing this on Gentoo.

This looks like a bug fixed in 3.0.1 - released just today

This also seemed to work:

Given the huge amount of negative reaction to this "feature"
especially on Ubuntu forums, I hope that it'll be backed out for *all*
applications.
