How did you verify that there is traffic still happening? Wireshark or something else?
I restart the computer once a day or so. And it is not only recently. For ad blocking I use pihole and blacklisted detectportal.firefox.com The url shows in blocked domains.

One reason you might be still seeing connections to detectportal is that you have it in your recent history/new page thumbnails. Trying it out with a new profile would verify if this is because of the captive portal detection or not. If it still happens in a new profile (with the about:config preferences changed as you describe in comment 0) I will ask you to gather some logs as per the instructions here . Change the log modules string to timestamp,sync,CaptivePortalService:5 Thanks! https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Debugging/HTTP_logging#Using_aboutnetworking
New profile is OK. In old profile I deleted files in thumbnails folder (not of captivedetect.canonicalURL but other sites) and that stopped the network traffic. I expected it to be an on/off switch but there was more to the story. Thanks.
Thanks for confirming. I'm glad to know that the captive portal service is working as expected.
