I do not have FF3, but in 2.x you can turn off prefetch from the
about:config settings. Give this a try:

In the URL address bar enter: about:config
In the about:config Filter bar enter: prefetch
That should show the prefetch preference: network.prefetch-next
Click on the "Value" and change it from 'true' to 'false'.
