This must be the firefox DNS prefetching, there is this firefox bug:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=488162

But, I don't have a network.dns.disablePrefetch in about:config, nor
anything similar!

Any ideas on how to turn it off???

Setting network.prefetch-next to false has no affect at all (with the
proxy on, I'll have to see if it changes with no proxy).

Fedora 11, with firefox version 3.5b4, rpm says firefox release 0.20.beta4.fc11
