Description rgrimsha 2008-09-17 12:55:27 EDT
Description of problem: Firefox generates a high amount of IP traffic in the background. Mostly to redhat archives, but other sites also.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RHEL 5.2 updated, firefox is at version 3.0.2

How reproducible: every time Firefox is launched, there is a delay followed by a high number of IP packets

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RHEL (installed behind NAT router for protection)
2. (I updated before noticing)
3. launch firefox while running a packet sniffer
Actual results:

Expected results:

I guess it means, I should close it, right?

   I realized that the complaint was self inflicted and wanted to cancel the request... didn't seem to have access to updates so I edited the title.
   This is an embarrassing user error. I had a large download that would restart everytime I restarted the browser. The downloads window was closed and I did't put the two together.
   This is NOT A BUG... please close with my apologies.
