    Here one,
    When I open firefox, and before I've being to search or goto a webpage...

    I notice peerblock going off, blocking something..
    Amazon Technologies 54.230.83.168 TCP


    there are about 20 entries, and I don't know what extension in firefox is doing this. since there is no-way in peerblock, do figure out what software, app, or extension is phoning home. (spyware / tracker)

    So, thought I would ask the group, is there a way, to figure out how the heck amazon is tracking me(without peerblock). with peerblock is being block, but the fact, I never wanted amazon tracking me to being with.

    Thanks
    :doubt:

    Maybe is because the firefox sync service is hosted in amazon, or any of the addons needs data from there...
