Hello.

90.0.2 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 20.04.

I noticed a lot of activity from my desktop computer to various ip's at bc.googleusercontent.com whenever I start, visit sites, or shut down firefox. I know this because I'm watching the tcp stream with tcpdump | grep 'googleusercontent'

This ONLY happens in Firefox not chrome or other browsers. Seeing this is a fresh install with no addons, tweaks, etc. I'd like to know WHY a fresh install of Firefox phones home to some googleusercontent user. See below snippet of logs:

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Tried the solution. Still getting a steady stream of connections to bc.googleusercontent.com

I have data from the troubleshooting print out but it exceeds the limit of this posting.

Thanks @FredMcD.

I have researched bc.googleusercontent.com and know that they are not google.com but users on their cloud platform.

The mystery is why are they only active outbound from my machine when I open Firefox with no plugins or any outbound connections established on a fresh install with a blank landing page.

Thanks for any insights.
