*hm* By some weird reason, the Firefox included in “Hardy Heron” (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS; i.e. Firefox 3.0b5) defaults as “Work Offline”.
This, in turn, prevents me from browsing the ‘net “as is” with my Huawei E220 dongle (eventhough surfing via (someone elses, weak) wireless broadband connection worked fine). The 3G modem worked fine under Firefox 2 (i.e. with “Gutsy Gibbon” – Ubuntu 7.10).

Solution (got the clue from surfing the Ubuntu forums): De-activate “Work Offline”. Every time I start Firefox.
[in Firefox 3.0b5: File → (untick) Work Offline]

Works: yes. Handy: no.
