    And if for some reason you don't like the idea of fetching random content without you clicking....

    It sounds like an easy way for a malicious site to get you to a site you would never click on by yourself.... so its not just a google issue IMO

    Go into the firefox config and change [size=-1]network.prefetch-next to False
    (using about:config is an easy way to do it or see here on www.mozilla.org)
    [/size]
