    Default No wifi logon page in FF

    I log on using KDE and NetworkManager connects to a wifi access point, but when I start FireFox I don't get the wifi logon page. This used to work, and I'm not sure what I changed.

    Are there any diagnostic data that I should collect? Any ideas? Thanks.

    Hello,

    Maybe it's a cache problem of firefox.
    Delete your favo etc.

    often you also have to go to a website that does not use https
    Than Access points usually come with the login page

    Suc6!

    Clearing the FF history does not resolve the problem. I also tried logging on with Gnome instead of KDE, and got the same results.

    this result is normal you are not connected to access point

    comes the login page if you visit a website that does not use ssl / https

    I think, only a DNS Problem.

    Code:
    netconfig update -f

    I concur with this. It is a name resolution issue ie no valid name server applied.
