Again, why is Firefox(in all my systems) the only app that "invites", and returns amazon pings?

I use mostly Linux systems, and I can go online with other apps, but when I start using Firefox, my PCs start getting , and returning amazon pings? I hate amazon. I've installed Block Site, but it persist. Some of the Linux firewalls stop it, but some don't. WHY is there no way to block it at the browser??

How do you know that pings are happening? Is there any visible evidence of them? According to my about:config information, I have blocked 85 pings. I was not aware of any attempt at sending any.

I have these settings in my about:config window:

  • browser.send_pings = false
  • browser.send_pings.max_per_link = 1
  • browser.send_pings.require_same_host = true

Not sure if those will help or not, however.
