Bug Description

Application version 1.8.9
WebKit version 538.1

I'm working with a laptop in an environment with several access points to the same WIFI network.

Each time I move my computer, it switches to another access point an the network is lost for a few sec/min.

When this happens, Qupzilla (which only has a single gmail page opened) is just unable to recover. It just shows the error message: "Network access is disabled."

Then, whatever the page I try to open or reload, it shows the message... I have to restart the whole software to be able to surf again...

VEEEEERY annoying...
