Every time I open Firefox it wants access the internet. I want that stopped!
Since I downloaded the new Firefox 17 it causes my firewall to throw up the message that FirFox wants internet access, Block or Allow. Also, each incident, Firefox shows a different numbered Port.
I wan to stop this. I don't want any system to have internet access. I want manual control of aALL software access to the internet.
I would appreciate learning of a fix.
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 11.5 r502
- Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 10.1.1
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0
You do know firefox is a web browser, so it needs to access the internet to be useful right?
