Enables the 'load from cache first' mode only when offline now. If online, it should check the network first.

(Note that loading 'saved pages' still loads them from whenever you ... saved them. :)

Reopen if this trouble continues with future versions.

We regressed in commit 318653d7dc6e3fb52d30ebbd8da56d9030b6dac9 by turning on the caching unconditionally when loading pages -- need to check if we're online

fixed in 5e7b7591cc98e9371ec52085056f0ca50649ef85
