Description

In ff68 there are some snippets network requests coming from activity stream (resource://activity-stream/lib/ASRouter.jsm). We should make sure to disable these and any other related background requests.

Some relevant prefs: https://github.com/ghacksuserjs/ghacks-user.js/blob/a92c4086bbf8c4324c4369d1dc8a39338334af45/user.js#L109

I think we can close this one, since in #31575 we removed initialization of AboutNewTab, which is where all these requests were coming from.
