George, think about this, LXR is your friend! 

Now, there are two visual indicators in mozilla for this. First there is menu/file/work on-offline and secondly you have this little status icon on the status bar. So what should you do instead of asking? Right, open navigator.xul and you locate this line:

<statusbarpanel class="statusbarpanel-iconic" id="offline-status"/>

Now use LXR to search for "offline-status" Here's a link for it:
