Whenever FIrefox is open, I see that my (very slow) internet is being used to download something secretly in Firefox - If I use Resource Monitor to check, I find that Firefox.exe is downloading from and sometimes also from These IP addresses are associated with CloudFlare, whoever that is. I have addons installed for AdBlock Plus, but this is a large download that never seems to stop....

Thanks for your help, and Firefox is the best software!

Cloudflare is a company that websites will use to protect their servers from attack. It is likely that what you are seeing is a normal request to cloudflare while you browse the internet (Cloudflare approves your request and then loads up the website you are actually going to)
