I'm using Firefox (3.6.17) on my Ubuntu Lucid (rel. 10.04) and noticed that if the network cable is plugged everything is fine and I'm able to browse my local virtualhost configured in Apache2.
But if I unplug the network, the local vhost is no longer reachable by Firefox and shows the message:
Server not found
Firefox can't find the server at atn-dev.hal901.com
I think Linux and Apache2 are configured correctly because wget and Chromium browser are still able to contact the vhost. It seems to be a Firefox bug.
The problem is I widely use Firefox and I need it for web development. Firefox is only able to reach
http://localhost/ when network is unplugged.
I know there is the Firefox "Work Offline" option in the File menu, but I already unchecked it.
Moreover I completely disabled it through the
about:config page, setting
browser.offline property to
Can anyone figure out a solution?
