User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0) Build Identifier: firefoxsetup-0.9.2.exe The Firefox installation generated by file firefoxsetup-0.9.2.exe has been caught listening to ports 2011, 2021, 2025, and 2030 (as reported by ZoneAlarm Pro) the port listened to increments each time the browser is started. At first I one of the add ons might have caused it. I isolated the test system from the network, formatted the system partition, did a virgin install of window 2k pro and ran firefoxsetup-0.9.2.exe and found it listening to ports. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.have software installed that can detect port listening 2.run the firefoxsetup-0.9.2.exe 3.run firefox Actual Results: firefox is shown to be listening to port 2011 on first run, terminate firefox and upon restart listening to 2021, terminate/restart 2025, and terminate/restart 2030. I assume it will keep increasing the port number on each restart. Expected Results: Not be listening to ports! NOTE THAT THUNDERBIRD-0.7.2.EXE INSTALLATION OF THUNDERBIRD WAS ALSO LISTENING TO PORTS (However, I did not check it on a clean install) I would suspect the installer as multiple packages are involved.
I forgot to mention that I pulled a fresh copy of Firefoxsetup-0.9.2.exe from the Mozilla site with the 'clean' system and FC /B showed it to be identical to to copy I was using. Also all patches from Microsoft for Windows 2k pro were applied. My systems are connected to the internet via a Netgear RP614. Norton (with the latest virus defs) shows no viruses present.
Mozilla products establish a pair of ports listening to each other for interprocess communication, is this what you're seeing? if you do a "netstat" from a command prompt window what is the foreign address? If it's localhost then this is what you're seeing and it's OK. If it's something else please reopen the bug.
