I keep CONSTANTLY getting an issue, that even wakes my computer up itself from sleep mode (even when im sleeping turning the monitors on and waking me up driving me CRAZY!), and it's always "Name resolution for the name detectportal.firefox.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded." in my event log. Please help to stop this!

Firefox uses http://detectportal.firefox.com to check whether it can connect to internet. If this fails then Firefox may show a banner asking to login.

I already did the about config and made it false but it's still happening.

Sounds like you got malware running that shouldn't be there?

I had a scan run recently when this happened and it said there was no malware threats.
