Firefox constantly connects to old sites - Little snitch - repeat

more options

I posted this before. My OP: == I have the latest Firefox, and use Little snitch always. Constantly, i get popups from LS, asking for FF to connect to sites that i have used previously. Many, and no apparent pattern. Please. How can i shut off this 'function' of FF pre-connecting, or whatever it is? Anyone else getting this? [link to old post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1348091#answer-1437370] == I am reposting, because the old one was archived, and i am still experiencing this problem. I don't know if it's a problem with FF itself. Is there a way i could check? I have addons, and i have shut them off, singly and in groups, and i always still get LS popups. My addons: AdBlocker Ultimate AdBlocker for YouTube Default Bookmark Folder Firefox Multi-Account Containers Ghostery Google analytics opt-out LocalCDN NoScript Privacy Badger uBlock Origin Laser Cat Again, all of these i have shut off at various times, and still get wanting to connect messages.

Any advice, ideas, thoughts, methods, directions would be very welcome!

Do you mean this can occur when you are just reading a page (nothing is moving, not even the mouse), or is it related to searching, ads loading, content loading, etc.?

Your other thread links to the main article about automatic connections (How to stop Firefox from making automatic connections). What have you tried disabling so far?
