    When Firefox crashes, TALKBACK.EXE is launched to communicate crash data to the Mozilla Group. This is supposed to enable the group to improve Firefox.

    I was watching Talkback.exe in action. I gave it permission to run with Process Guard, then permission to access the Internet with Lookn'stop. Next, I was expecting to see it connect to an Internet site through Port Explorer. Port Explorer v2.000 did not budge, even though PE was set to monitor remote traffic (but not local traffic). But I know a connection was made because Lookn'stop's "connections" windows showed the site to which talkback connected to (the Mozilla Group, fortunately).

    While the story has a good ending, it looks like PE missed the traffic. Any comment?
