Hi. As openning Firefox, a new message is displayed: "Ce réseau nécessite que vous vous connectiez à un compte pour utiliser internet" (I'm in France). I hadn't this before. When I click on it, I have the message "success". What is that for? How to deasable this? Thanks for your help. JMM

Hi, type about:config into the address bar, press Enter and accept any warning, then copy and paste the following into the search box network.captive-portal-service.enabled Now on the search result, click the Toggle button at the right-hand end to change from True to False. You may need to restart Firefox to implement the change. More - see under the Network Detection heading in How to stop Firefox from making automatic connections.
