I always used an old version of ZoneAlarm. I had some problems with a virus last week but I managed to clean it out, at least it seems so to me.
Anyway after cleaning my sistem i installed a new version of zonealarm (7.0.462.000)
Now, when i run Firefox it first ask me to connect to 127.0.0.1 wich is ok, i always allowed that, firefox opens and displays a blank page (that's my setting).
Now when i try to connect to a page (for example google.it) zonealarm asks me to let firefox connect to some ip on the port 53 (DNS). If I deny firefox is not able to web-surf.
i tried many times to run firefox and connect to google.it, every time the ip to wich firefox wants to connect is different, here's a list of some of the ips it requests:
I have no Firefox extentions installed, disabled firefox automatic updates.
I have no clue why firefox wants to conenct to so many different ips.
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
