    The current title of this article is "How to stop Firefox from automatically making connections without my permission" . It shows up in google search results as:

    How to stop Firefox from automatically making connections ...
    

    and in Yahoo search, as

    How to stop Firefox from automatically making connecti...
    

    Since "automatically" already implies "without my permission" I was thinking to change the title to How to stop Firefox from making automatic connections or maybe, Firefox makes unrequested connections to the Internet

    On the second suggestion: People might just want to know WHY the connections are being made and if they're legitimate, as was recently asked here: /questions/1051712

    P.S.: I checked what links here and it looks like the original title of this article was: Firefox makes unrequested connections.

    Thanks, Joni. I changed the title to that one.

    This article now has a Table of Contents again and collapsed sections are gone, after renaming the article.

    I added a comment to the related bug, asking if it should be reopened or if a new bug should be filed:

    File a new one. Re-opening bugs is for when they were closed in error and work actually remained to be done. This is bug was closed correctly, and things have changed now so we have a new problem.


    Joni, I'll leave it up to you to file a new bug. Personally, I think we should wait until this open bug is fixed before adding the "collapsed sections" feature to any more articles:

    Bug 1142285 - in article with collapsed sections <h1> headings are not shown properly when used with {for}

    Let's give it a couple of weeks so we get a sense of when Bug 1142285 will be fixed.

    If there's no progress by then, I'll just go ahead and file a bug to add collapsed sections to this article.

    This seems to be fixed since I now see collapsed sections again and no TOC.
