Why do ports remain open after closing Firefox?

I have noticed recently that several ports associated with Firefox remain open when the Firefox browser is closed. The number of open ports increases each time Firefox is opened and I have seen that the number of open ports has reached to more than 1,000 open ports at a time. The majority of the open ports are outbound TCP using port 443 and I also note a sustained increase in the network traffic after Firefox is closed.

I have observed ports opened by the Explorer browser and noted that all of the ports opened with Explorer close when the Explorer browser is closed. The Firefox ports remain open when the browser is closed.

Questions: - Should all open ports associated with an open Firefox browser close when the Firefox browser is closed? - Does Firefox have a setting that closes all open ports when the Firefox browser is closed? - Does XP have a setting that will close all open ports associated with Firefox when Firefox is closed? - Should I have security concerns about the accumulating open ports and increased network activity when using Firefox?

Thanks.

I had been using numerous sites where I my username and password was appropriately retained using Firefox 36.0.4. With the update to 37.0.4, all this failed. My stored usernames and passwords failed. Deleting these credentials would not work - I would enter them, the dialogue about whether to store these would flash in the upper left of the browser window, and I would be asked for my credentials again. Happened on multiple sites on different servers. Deleting profile and reinstalling V37.0.4 did not fix. The only solution was to scrub out V37.0.4 and reinstall the prior V36.0.4. How to communicate this to the Firefox developers.

Firefox goes into offline mode on a regular basis - not always, but usually several times per day. I've already set network.manage-offline-status to false (actually, it was already set that way when I checked it). It appears to happen more when I move off of a tab and then come back to it. I've uninstalled and wiped all traces for Firefox and re-installed - same result.

How can this mode be completely disabled?

Have info on High CPU utilization that points to interaction of multiple products - where can I report this?

'm experiencing the high CPU utilization when FireFox is running that has been reported in other posts. I believe the problem is the result of an interaction between multiple products. Here is my trouble shooting approach. I disabled Adobe Flash plugin. CPU utilization dropped from 70%+ CPU (60% of which was System CPU) back to < 10% CPU. I reenabled Adobe Flash and opened FireFox. CPU was again 70%+. I closed all tabs that had Flash content. After a few seconds CPU went back to <10%. I opened Facebook and CPU went to 50+% CPU, most of which was System. I opened www.wral.com and CPU increased to 70%+. As I open additional flash content pages the CPU continues to increase. Other events that may be associated with this problem were: 1. An upgrade to Adobe Flash which also resulted in periodic Flash crashes. 2. An unwanted installation of McAfee Security Scan that came with a scam virus message. Online research suggested running Malware Bytes. 3. Installation of Malware Bytes 4. Removal of McAfee Security Scan The CPU issue appeared sometime during this process but I can't associate with an exact event. My conclusion is that the problem may be due to an interaction of my Antivirus software with flash content appearing in FireFox. Running: Windows 8.1 Firefox 36.0 Adobe Flash 16 NPAPI Trial Copy of Malware Bytes 2.0.4.1028 McAfee is at latest release My next step will be to deactivate Malware Bytes. After that I will uninstall and reinstall Flash. Looking for any additional ideas and a sanity check on my conclusions and next steps.
