Just been checking my outbound connections with CurrPorts and found some Very disturbing ones 18.104.22.168 = Google Inc - Port 80 http 22.214.171.124 = Google Inc - Port 443 https So i closed FF cleaned out my cache and reloaded FF, and came here. Straightaway i got a 126.96.36.199 = Google Inc - Port 80 http connection, as well as the Wilders ones of course. I'm NOT saying it's Anything to do with Wilders. I recently updated FF to v3.6.11 and also updated 2 Add Ons yesterday, which were NoScript to v2.0.4 and Ghostery to v2.4.1 Plus i added another new one, which i disabled to eliminate that possibility. I'm going to disable ALL my Add Ons and see what happens without them, and then one by one enable them all to find the culprit/s. In the meantime i've posted this as a heads up so you can check and see if it's happening to you. I searched for Google with about:config and saw these entries. I'm guessing that the Strings are not in themselves responsible ? and the ones i've set to True are OK. The Integer entry is ASFAIK "supposed" to be long enough not to make contact ? So if ALL those entries are OK, then it's none of those causing the connections. If anyone sees a problem with ANY of them, please advise Once i've established what the issue/s is/are i'll let you know.
