Stop FF calls out to IP address 72.21.91.19 every 15 minutes

Why does FF call out to the IP address 72.21.91.19? I found that the IP is part of Edgecast and seemed to be possibly related to FF live bookmarks and/or the latest headline live book mark.

But FF is still trying to go to that IP even after the live bookmark was removed. It tries to do this every 15 minutes and sometimes more often.

Currently I am blocking that IP with my firewall. This seems to be a privacy & security problem. But I have not found a way to completely block live bookmarks. This ONLY happens if FF is open and happens regardless of what site the browser is or has been visiting.

This is an older system and FF ver 3.6.28 ( it's a good old stable W2k OS system). FF is using NoScript, Ghostery, & ADP. The system passes all virus checks, including Malware Bytes and Super AntiSpyware.

Hi.

Just reporting issues with the latest Firefox 3.6.6 release where it does not load heavy flash use pages well at all. See www.tsn.ca for an example. It takes 20-30 seconds to fully load the TSN homepage which I noticed started occurring after I had updated to the latest Firefox version. I had the latest Flash plug-ins installed so that wasn't the problem.

I uninstalled Firefox 3.6.6 and located my previous Firefox version 3.6.3 and installed that which totally fixed that issue in loading any Flash websites. Must have been something that was changed in the latest release.

Others I am sure have reported this issue but thought someone should know....to hopefully work out the bugs/issues.

When I sign in to Google groups, then select one of my groups, I get into an "infinite redirect loop." The page hangs, "Redirecting" appears in the page title, and at the bottom it says (alternating) "waiting for google.com" or "waiting for groups.google.com". I have Firefox 3.6.3, which I think is latest and greatest.

This problem has been reported to Google and you can see the discussion here: http://groups.google.com/group/is-something-broken/browse_thread/thread/8fb760742f6ce7ba/f7065d7bd3499f65#f7065d7bd3499f65

You go to the Google Groups help forum, look at "Is something broken" discussion, and look further for "Infinite Redirect Loop." This may be a problem that only affects moderators.

I'm not sure if this is a problem with Firefox, Google groups, or the interaction.

i just bought a new computer, downloaded the latest firefox (did not import any info from my old computer's firefox yet), and though i saw the expected prompt to save a password when entering one on a site once (i did not save it at the time), the prompt no longer appears. the same thing occurs for any site, it never asks me if i want to save a password. i've rechecked my settings, and i have it set correctly to ask for it (the box IS clicked to 'remember passwords for sites', don't have it in 'private browsing' mode either (the option is grayed oust), have disabled any add-ons that i had (i only have AdBlock and McAfee as add-ons), have restarted Firefox multiple times, and still no luck, it never asks me if i want to save a password for any logons on any sites. i'm running Windows 7, and using Firefox 3.6.11. HELP! thanks.

I would like to completely disable the "this connection is untrusted dialog." I am an administrator and deal with many intranet sites. It is not cost effective to set an exception for each site. Corporate standards require us to use either IE, or Firefox, and I would prefer not to have to use IE.

To be clear: I am not looking for a solution that lessens the amount of overall clicks, like in browser.ssl override behavor in "about:config" nor am I looking for an Add-on (like "remember certificate exception"). I am looking for a way to remove the "this connection is untrusted" dialog completely.

I just got the latest update for Firefox to 3.6.14. I have always been able to use Firefox to play games on Pogo.com. After the update today I can get into the site but 90% of the games won't upload. Pogo says in their help pages: Mozilla has a documented bug filed for Java support in Firefox 3.6.14. Since many Pogo games run on Java technology, this is obviously impacting those Pogo customers who are attempting to play their games with the latest version of the browser. Is this being addressed and if so what time frame are we looking at? Pogo suggest other browsers but I prefer mozilla above the others. Tbank you, Susan

Just recently---about a week,I'm experiencing extreme slowness, and crashes. Also, it seems the computer---an old one, just keeps running or looking for something, even though it seems I'm at the website and it doesn't need to do this? This used to not be a problem, but now it is. From a novices point of view, It just seems the computer wants to keep computing when it probably doesn't need to? I keep getting the two messages: Firefox not responding---associated with the little hour glass, and unresponsive script. These are the message's I get when things get slow and "unresponsive". Hope someone can help. I do try to keep up with the computer maintenance; hard disk, and defragging. But, that makes no difference. I have noticed though recently, that when I do clear space on my hard disk, I keep showing a lot of space can be cleared compared to normal? Thank you.

I can bring my Macbook Pro running Firefox 22.0 on Snow Leopard to your offices on Castro Street. That would be the fastest way to demonstrate the "crash" that consistently occurs. I've been a Systems Programmer at Stanford for over 41 years, and I've written code for which I've received Copyright protection. NOTE: I'm sending this from another computer running Firefox 3.6.28, which is NOT the version that's crashing.
