Bug description:
  Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

  Description:	Ubuntu hardy (development branch)
  Release:	8.04

    Installed: 3.0~b4+nobinonly-0ubuntu1
    Candidate: 3.0~b4+nobinonly-0ubuntu1
    Version table:

  The computer in use is running an apache http server.  It is not
  always connected to a network. The firefox home page is set to the
  localhost http server.  When not connected to a network through either
  ethernet or wifi, starting firefox 3.0 results in a failure to connect
  to the local server.  Manually changing to online mode rectifies the
  problem.   This bug is specific to firefox 3, and did not occur in
  previous versions.
