Sounds like the same issue people had with it, and other programs, on
Fedora 9.  Network manager can erroneously report that the system is
off-line, and certain software would drop into off-line mode.

If you don't use network manager, then completely turn off the service.
And it should stop affecting software in that manner.

If you don't want Firefox to be controlled by it, then you can turn that
feature off in Firefox.  Type about:config into the address bar, type
networkmanager into the filter bar, change the
toolkit.networkmanager.disable preference value to true (double clicking
it will toggle its status).

There's probably a similar problem, and solution, for Thunderbird.
Evolution also gets affected by NetworkManager, but I've not looked for
a work around.  I just make sure the network's up before I start the
program.
