I have upgraded to version 78 and with no connection open and no tabs open I see connections to the following

ec2-34-223-130-205.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com 104.16.249.249

The latter is cloudflare but I do not have any connections so i do not understand why a connection is being established to both.

I am not using Amazon virtual servers! More importantly I have no connections when Firefox establishes a connection.

Is this the default for all FF browsers to connect to Amazon?

I see these two IPs as well in about:networking#sockets.

104.16.249.249 seems to be related to Doh (DNS over HTTPS):

Currently mozilla.cloudflare-dns.com resolves to 104.16.248.249, 104.16.249.249, 2606:4700::6810:f9f9, 2606:4700::6810:f8f9 IP addresses.

Don't know for what purpose/service what the AWS EC2 server is being used.

My Mac operating system is identifying FF as establishing a connection to ec2-34-223-130-205.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com FF only shows sockets.

The other DOH IP addrss should not be disaplyed as a connection either because no connection to any service was made by FF. All tabs where closed

I tested the connection with a fresh FF install and it still continues to connect tocompute.amazonaws.com with no connections or tabs open.
