    Is there a way to use Firefox and Tbird off-line easily? A lot of the
    time my laptop is not connected to a network/internet when I'm
    travelling so off-line use is important to me (and I suspect most laptop
    owners)

    On Firefox, if I am off-line it simply says it cannot find the URL where
    IE pulls it up from cache if its available

    On Tbird I cannot find an easy way to download newsgroups for off-line
    reading - they seem to need to downloaded individually which is a three
    click operation (Rt Clk Properties/Offline Tab/Download now) OE allows
    me to get all message bodies in all or selected newsgroups in one click.
    It also can be set to off-line so it doesn't waste time putting up
    messages that it cannot contact the server everytime you click on the
    newsgroup.

    Many thanks

    You have to add an extension to TB for offline use

    Um, how do you use a browser offline?
