   firebaseinstallations.googleapis.com
   detectportal.firefox.com
   app.adjust.com
   o1069899.ingest.sentry.io
   assets.mozilla.net
   contile.services.mozilla.com
   firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com
   incoming.telemetry.mozilla.org
   location.services.mozilla.org

without user-consent. so this is not gdpr-compliant. how can i tell firefox not to connect to these sites? thanks t.

Some of these like detectprotal are for checking whether internet is working (IPv4 and IPv6), others are for loading remote data that is used to configure Firefox (services.mozilla.com). There might also be extensions that contact to specific websites like the ones that do not have Mozilla in their URL.

thanks, that at least brings some clarification.

however, that still does not solve the problem for the "non-mozilla" sites:

  firebaseinstallations.googleapis.com
  app.adjust.com
  o1069899.ingest.sentry.io

how can i disable these?

You can search the about:networking page for those websites and also do a Google search.

Could be about GCP (Google Cloud Platform):

If those connections still happen in Troubleshoot Mode and in a new clean, unmodified, profile then those connections are likely used internally for storing data on cloud servers remotely and they are required to make Firefox work properly.
