I experience a problem where Firefox and Thunderbird (but no other programs) will not not recognize a newly established internet connection after it was lost. I have no proxy set. Chrome works flawlessly.
3 months ago I’ve updated my main stationary PC from Leap 42.2 to Tumbleweed. Leap used Wicked service as default network setting for wired connection. It slowed down the boot time, but anyway, worked.
After update, which brought the Network manager as default I began experiencing the described problems. For wired connection it does not ask any password and do not trigger kwallet.
Reading the mentioned topic I’ve checked settings for default “Wired connection 1” and it is in ‘All users may connect to this network’ state by default.
Switching to Wicked resolved the problem with the price of some seconds during boot. But, as I understand, Wicked is no more under development.
This must be a widely reproduced bug, I wonder why it is not reported before…
