Question

TCP connections alive well after Firefox is closed

According to Sysinternals TCPView, I have several TCP connections that stay open (established) well after I close and exit Firefox, I'm talking 8 hours after. Normal connections close within minutes if shutting down Firefox. I'd post a pic, but there is no option for it so here's a paste (commas instead of tabs):

process/protocol, local address, remote asddress, state firefox.exe.7108, TCP, russ-l675,gt,rr,com.53713, dfw06s17-in-17.1e100.net:http, established firefox.exe.7108, TCP, russ-l675,gt,rr,com.54103, 203.30.164.5:http, established

I can (and do!) manually close these connections and they don't come back until I restart FF.

Thanks!

Russ
