    Deactivating firefox3 behind-the-curtain requests

    "I don't know about you or the general FF3 userbase, but I myself want my browser to _not_ do any requests without my knowledge and consent - at best I want my browser only to perform those requests that I tell it to do and *nothing* more.

    -

    Having changed all these settings should lead to no more network activity of the browser without explicit request to do so."

    "Some people are particularly concerned about the connections Firefox makes to the internet, especially when such connections are made with no apparent cause. This article will explain the various reasons why Firefox may legitimately make a connection to the internet, and how you can stop it from doing so if you so desire."
