By default firefox searches a lot for captive portals. It uses their own
domain, which you can change, but the defaults are pretty much IP tracking if
you dont change that.
I dont know why but even after I reenabled that, the arkenfox presets (with
very soft mods) still make captive portals not work. Also because in general
the "HTTPS-only" policy seems to kill it, idk actually.
having a seperate browser dealing with that, and potentially being whitelisted
by the VPN so you dont have to turn it off, and also only connecting if you
want to. As QTWebengine is integrated, this would be the alternative to
androids captive portal checker.
And you dont need internet only through the browser. You need it also for other
applications like updating, which has no GUI at all. You may not have a browser
open. Using QTWebengine could be way better, as you could add a button to the
Network manager applet.
I dont know how placing the qtwebengine window would work, left of the window
would work but only on the standard KDE layout. Above would look weird
