Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.9.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.9.3

Mozilla contacts rheet on closing down.  When I "X" out of the browser, Zone
Alarm alerts me that there is a connection from Firefox to rheet.  Running a
packet sniffer, you can easily pick up the activity. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open FireFox with Zone Alarm Suite running
2.Close FireFox 
3.
Actual Results:  
Zone Alarm Suite lights up with two green/red bars when closing.  

Expected Results:  
There should be no packets sent over the internet when closing down.  Zone Alarm
should show no connection between Firefox and the internet.  Afterall, your
closing it down.  Internet Explorer shows no connection.  Firefox should also.

I want to make an additional comment that this is NOT a startup bug.  It's a
shutdown bug.

Please disable any extensions you may have and make sure one of those is not the
culprit. Also please attach the log from your packet sniffer to this bug.

see also bug 258069.  No response from the reporter, so closing as WFM.

thinkerdreamer: feel free to reopen this bug if you are still having a problem
and can attach additional information.
