Why is Firefox communicating with China from the UK?
Hello there, I'm using a Firefox beta v13) and have had my firewall warn me that Firefox was attempting an outbound communication to IP 184.108.40.206. It's done this before (in prior versions too) and if I deny the connection, Firfox stops working.
I finally did a lookup on the IP and found that it's in China. Why is Firefox doing this and how do I make it stop? I'm rather worried.

Have you tested in Firefox's Safe Mode to see whether it is caused by a custom setting or add-on?
First, I recommend backing up your Firefox settings in case something goes wrong. See Backing up your information. (You can copy your entire Firefox profile folder somewhere outside of the Mozilla folder.)
