also, not sure what this means, but the system will automatically check the "work offline" in the file menu every time I re-try getting onto the internet (mozilla firefox)

hopefully one more quick question
I just noticed that the "work offline" file menu is re-checked every time I go into my browser
how do I get it to stay "online" ?

cat /etc/network/interfaces 

only loopback should be present


shouldn't the ethernet be present too?

Just uncheck it, that should do the trick.
