Right after I click "post" to that problem, I realized that "Work Offline" was checked. It works now. Thank you Karen for prompt reply, I appreciate it. I am sure there are more to come :-)

I am a django newbie. The first example I tried from django's tutorial "mysite", ran python runserver. Server runs with no errors but my web browser (firefox) get "Firefox offline mode error" and not django 404 errors. I tried different localhost ports, but same error. My browser doesn't seem to communicate with django's lightweight server. What to do?

Go to the Firefox File menu and see if "Work Offline" is checked.  If it is, select it, so that it becomes unchecked.  Then Firefox won't stop any attempt to connect before even trying.  If "Work offline" is not checked, I have no idea.  It sounds like a Firefox problem so I'd probably try a different browser, and assuming that works pursue tracking down what the problem with Firefox is.
