A few weeks ago, with 3.0.10 and now with 3.0.11, I receive from Windows Defender, frequent (every 10 minutes) requests to permit system changes. Here is what is reported:

Summary:
System Configuration change occurred.

This agent monitors security related configuration changes made to Windows.

Detected changes:
New: 1110:UDP:*:Enabled:Windows Media Format SDK (firefox.exe)
Original: Not available

firewallport (New):
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\StandardProfile\GloballyOpenPorts\List\\1110:UDP

Advice:
Permit this configuration change only if you trust its origin. It is recommended that you run a quick scan if you choose to deny this change.

Checkpoint:
Firewall Port Exceptions

Category:
Configuration Change


Reproducible: Always



Expected Results:  
No requests for system changes. This does not occur on my other computer.

This is not Firefox that does that - it's a plugin that does that (Windows Media Player ?).
