Firefox 80 with no connections establishes a connection

FF version 80 for the Mac OS, SHA256 d6efd1c0d99e9bb75d12000e2ee7f7aee52159e5fb060ea1f0018681c14ae61b makes a connections to 2 sites even though no browser tabs are open.… (read more)

FF version 80 for the Mac OS, SHA256 d6efd1c0d99e9bb75d12000e2ee7f7aee52159e5fb060ea1f0018681c14ae61b makes a connections to 2 sites even though no browser tabs are open.

Using the command lsof-i|grep Firefox reveals the connections below

lsof -i|grep firefox firefox 2789 mac 44u IPv4 0x6fbad2a8710b0ceb 0t0 TCP 192.168.100.104:53755->104.16.249.249:https (ESTABLISHED) firefox 2789 mac 103u IPv4 0x6fbad2a8740d6a2b 0t0 TCP 192.168.100.104:53599->ec2-34-223-130-205.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com:https (ESTABLISHED)

why are these connections being made?

I downloaded the file from Mozillas " Directory Listing: /pub/firefox/releases/80.0/mac/en-US/ " and I found that the SHA256 hash check is different when downloaded from another browser for the same version 80. The sha256 are as follows


d6efd1c0d99e9bb75d12000e2ee7f7aee52159e5fb060ea1f0018681c14ae61b Firefox 80.0.dmg

The second sha256 from another browser from the exact same URL.

c5234f44f7b4102debdbd0a5af56e9414d0f6d99a38eb1cbd99b43f186b28a85 Firefox 80.0(2).dmg

virus total check both and no malware identified but they are both the same version 80 for Mac OS.

Why two different versions from the same URL ?

Hi,

Last week, Firefox told me to update my android phone browser. I did & updated it with firefox nightly. I used this opportunity to change my main email address. Then, I decided to create a new my keyword, on my phone. At last, I created a backup key to protect my keyword & downloaded it, but can't find it anymore.

Since, impossible to open my account on any of my devices (Macbook, IPad & Android phone) because my main keyword is considered wrong.

Computer browser is 80.0.1 version IPad browser is 28.0 (18809) version.

I have a main email address & a secondary one (which receives no information from firefox). On my phone, I'm asked a 4 figures code that I can't find anywhere. I tried to download the QR code authentification application, but my MAC browser does not show any QR Code, it asks me the main keyword.

I don't want to loose all my IDs & keywords. I'm going mad, what should I Do ?

The world is not-so-slowly getting undermined by sophisticated technical attacks on our understanding of reality (pretty much any topic - take politics as an example). One of the newer technology is the ability to create, through sophisticated digital editing tools that utilize artificial intelligence, videos that simulate public figures doing or saying whatever the author wishes. There are DeepFake pornographic movies with popular actors and politicians. They run the gamut of ones imagination. Without specific tools to detect and block such products, we're all just sitting ducks in a rising tide of disinformation.

I would like to see a tool embedded in Firefox that detects and notifies the user/viewer of deepfake graphics: photo or video images.

There are of course issues. Performance is certainly one. This might be mitigated by having images buffered in the cloud where they could be analyzed with high performance hardware - then they could be downloaded to our smartphones and other devices. People with high end hardware could do this locally as an option.

I could go on, but I think I've summarized the need.

Here's a tool that Microsoft just released: https://techcrunch.com/2020/09/02/microsoft-launches-a-deepfake-detector-tool-ahead-of-us-election/

When I am using gmail I have the calandar application on the right. It has a link to open the full calandar in a new tab. However, firefox throws a warning about the page doing a redirect and I have to click allow. How do I turn that off for gmail / calandar only? I've looked at the exceptions but that doesn't seem to work or I'm not looking at the right settings.

When using Facebook messenger I receive audio & video ok. When calling someone on messenger I get a drop-down message from Firefox asking me if I want to allow use of my camera & microphone. Despite me approving use, I only ever broadcast audio, leaving a blank screen for recipient. Please do not get me involved with technicalities - I am competent with the hardware on my laptop and can bang out spread sheets and documents, emails, and browse the web - I just cannot fathom out trouble shooting and do not have the confidence to "mess about". I guess it's an age thing.

I have had many an expensive trip to my local computer repair shop, to undo the mess I have got into trying

to sort out alledgedly "easy problems"

Every PC I have has Firefox, but only ones updated to 79 or later list i.ebayimg.com as blocked content, and won't display the eBay thumbnails in my email.

Switching to Standard Protection or turning of Protection OFF for Outlook.com fixes this, but it shouldn't be happening at all.

I use a Firefox account and all of my browsers all have the same basic setup - no exceptions set on any of them, for any site.

Hi, loving the multi-account containers. A quick question as I may be using them wrong or misunderstanding their usage...

I have a Google container set up, who doesn't?

So I'm on a Google site (www.google.com) and it's showing as inside a container. If I then use the address bar to search for something, that directs to duck-duck-go or using the address bar to go to say https://store.pine64.org/product-category/pinephone/. it stays in the container.

I had assumed that as I move away from the contained site it would close the container.
