Subject: [gentoo-user] Does Firefox call Google?
Date: Tue, 22 Sep 2009 22:08:55
1 I have a remote system on which shorewall blocks all outgoing 80/443
2 traffic except for 1 destination IP. I noticed that whenever someone
3 logs in to an xfce4 session on that system, I see a bunch of rejected
4 80/443 requests from that system to various Google IPs from throughout
5 their session. Does Firefox periodically make Google requests for
6 some reason? The person logging in says they aren't attempting to
7 access Google, and the home page is not set to go there. Does anyone
8 know why this might be happening?
