Not true at all. For example, if Internet Explorer goes into the offline mode nothing that uses the global settings will be able to connect to the internet, but Firefox will still be able to access the internet because it uses its own settings and not the global settings (same with some of the other browsers). The LOTRO client uses the global settings, so if IE puts it in the offline mode the client will not be able to access the internet. You don't even need to use IE as your primary browser for it to happen.
