I've been using Firefox for awhile now. Aside from a few details, it works well and I am satisfied. The only major problem I have is that it keeps connecting to the Internet. Many times I leave the browser open and my computer on while I'm not using it. I hear it connecting while I'm in bed, or it's already connected when I try to use the phone. Can someone PLEASE tell me how to make this thing stop?

Go to Tools -> Options -> Advanced and on the Update tab, uncheck those.

Isn't that what a web browser is supposed to do?

Sorry couldn't resist the temptation after reading the Topic, but before reading the content of your posting.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

On a serious note, there are very good reason why one wouldn't want Firefox to connect to the Internet (or, in fact, even open a browser window - printing an HTML file).
