This method is for anyone who is getting the message, “Horizon is running in offline mode”, after the latest server switch. The reason this message is showing is because your computer is holding onto to the dns from the last server. This is quite easy to fix. Below is how to fix it.
Go to the start menu on your computer and go to the search bar
Type cmd and hit enter
Once in cmd (command prompt) type this exactly: ipconfig /flushdns
Restart Horizon, it will now be running normally

Delete and reinstall Horizon
Make Horizon an exception in every antivirus software you have
