Firefox 80.0.1 keeps running in the background, eating up my dial-up speed. This happened after loading this latest version. When starting a new session, I let the pre-fetching stop, and then browse. This used to work well, but not anymore.

Before 80.0.1 came out, you folks had me eliminate some pre-fetching which worked well with earlier versions, but I can find nothing on-line about this new version and what is causing it. It starts periodically during a session, and then stops, and starts again, seemingly at random. With a dial-up, this is almost unusable. Any ideas?
