Narcis, I'm not sure if there is a plugin for Firefox.
Gary, please, see below my diagnosis. Looks like Gnuzilla (52.1.0 64bit) does not open so many auto-connections as the official Firefox. I was able to catch the following hosts:


To avoid these ones, I did the following in the Preferences:
- General: Show a blank page
- Search: removed all the suggested search engines and let only 1 there.
- Privacy: Tracking=disabled, Always apply "Do Not Track" = unchecked, Location Bar = 3 unchecked (History, Bookmarks, Open tabs).
- Security: Block dangerous and deceptive content = disabled
- Sync = empty
- Advanced: Query OCSP responder server ..." = unchecked

and in the about:config:

browser.search.geoip.url = ""
network.captive-portal-service.enabled = false
browser.safebrowsing.blockedURIs.enabled = false

I believe there are a few others which automatically activate themselves after a period of time, but I couldn't catch them. I'm using tcpdump to monitor the connections.

My suggestion is still open: please, give the CHOICE for the users to disable all of those auto-connections during the first execution, and make this an extra option in the Preferences dialog.

Thanks for your attention.
