Why is Firefox communicating with China from the UK?
Hello there, I'm using a Firefox beta v13) and have had my firewall warn me that Firefox was attempting an outbound communication to IP 220.127.116.11. It's done this before (in prior versions too) and if I deny the connection, Firfox stops working.
I finally did a lookup on the IP and found that it's in China. Why is Firefox doing this and how do I make it stop? I'm rather worried.

Have you tested in Firefox's Safe Mode to see whether it is caused by a custom setting or add-on?
First, I recommend backing up your Firefox settings in case something goes wrong. See Backing up your information. (You can copy your entire Firefox profile folder somewhere outside of the Mozilla folder.)
Next, restart Firefox in Safe Mode using
Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
In the Safe Mode dialog, do not check any boxes, just click "Continue in Safe Mode."
If you still get the connection out, you could also try disabling all update checking (Options > Advanced > Update > "Never check"). Does that make any difference?
