[Bug-gnuzilla] Suggestion: disable unwanted connections

I'm writing this letter to make a suggestion for GNUzilla/IceCat developers. The official Firefox opens many unwanted connections to various domains without the user's consent. All of those connections are completly useless for using the web browser, and Firefox doesn't offer a global option to allow the user to disable all of them together. Currently, the user who wants to disable them must disable some options in the Preferences dialog and go to each available option at about:config page to be able to disable most of the connections, and this still doesn't grant that the web browser will open any other extra connections in the future. As you guys can see, this is a privacy concern. So, here is my suggestion: create an option that gives the user the possibility to easily disable all of the background connections, which will avoid him to spend about 30 minutes.
