Hi Experts,

Disabled google docs offline, but that didnt help.

There is an offline mode in the developer tools but it would be a deliberate effort to enable it for a website.
To check press CTRL+SHIFT_I
Press CRTL+SHIFT+M to toggle the device toolbar.
You should then see a toolbar that by default would show "Responsive" then the resolution "400x860", the zoom percentage "100%" and throttling level "Online".
It is the throttling that can be set to offline.

As stated, this would be deliberat to enable and it is for the website on that tab. Something to check though.
