JSI Tip 3188. More on the Internet Explorer Work Offline command is missing/unavailable.

We first discussed this problem in tip 2926 ยป The 'Work Offline' command is missing from the file menu?.

If you are using a local home page, the work offline command is unavailable. However, when you connect to an external site, it is still unavailable, until you start a new instance of IE?

There is a bug in Internet Explorer. It doesn't check/set the proper flags when you connect.

The only workaround is to start a new instance, by pressing CTRL+N or double-clicking the icon.
