Having manually put firefox back into 'online mode' (from the File menu) 
things 'work'... however I wonder if this is something i'll have to 
twiddle every time or not...

Anyhoo, blimming marvellous. Now ideally, id be able to find out how to 
run gnome-ppp as a user, not as root...

(anyone got any clues as to exactly which files it wants to touch? I tried 
setting the 'group' ownership of /etc/ppp/pap-secrets, chap-secrets and 
/usr/sbin/pppd to a group which my account is a member of, didn't actually 
seem to work, even with '7' group permissions on the files... wondering 
what I missed... ppp threw up error code '2' which im still in the process 
of looking up...

Basically hoping to benefit from someone else's experience :)
