As soon as I start the Firefox Browser, it is connecting to multiple IP addresses. Any idea why it is doing so? Is there a way to stop it? Is it a privacy and security issue?

I have already changed most of the setting as mentioned in the following article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

Some of the IP connections have stopped after making those changes. But there are still few connections. They are: - 35.244.181.201 (This is Google LLC) - 13.227.142.108 (This is Amazon) - 117.18.237.29 (This appears to be Verizon Media) - 54.70.109.38 (This is Amazon) - 52.38.31.225 (This is Amazon)

It will be great if someone could shed some light on this issue. Thanks in advance.

Those could be caused by add-ons or search engines.
