From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-4GB i686; en-US; rv:0.8.1+) Gecko/20010502 BuildID: 2001050208 I noticed that Mozilla seems to access xslt.alexa.com for each request. By looking at that site i assume it is related to the "what's related" tab in the sidebar. However i can't find a way to disable this globally and the preferences to disable it for specific domains does not seem to have any effect either. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1./usr/sbin/tcpdump host 220.127.116.11 2. goto www.mozilla.org (any site will do) 3. watch the traffic It should be possible to disable this globally.
er... you could just remove the what's related tab from the sidebar. That will prevent what's related information from being fetched and keep xslt.alexa.com from being accessed. The preference description is lying. It acts like "host names" not "domains" as far as I can tell.... Bug 78821 filed on the pref not doing what it's supposed to.
