Turn off captive portal

Our Websense reports are no longer accurate because http://detectportal.firefox.com/success.txt is keeping the end users browser session active. All of our Firefox users are showing an excessive amount of browse time for the month because of this. Is their a setting I can disable within Firefox? Thanks

There isn't a UI checkbox for this, so...

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste captiv and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the network.captive-portal-service.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

If you are in a managed environment using an autoconfig file, for example, you could use this to switch the default:

user_pref("network.captive-portal-service.enabled", false);

Thank you for the quick response! I tried it successfully on one user. Only about 1000 others to go, lol.
