So when I start up firefox and then I run 'cmd' and do a netstat -no

I almost always see connections to grc.com,
In the example below, it's 4.79.142.192 and in others its 4.79.142.202
Then there is a connection to 207.142.131.228 which turns out to be wikimedia
And all these others random connections. Why is that? Do I have a virus or is firefox just crazy?

as you can tell, i'm behind a router/firewall
pid 484 is firefox and pid 0 is System Idle Process

Code:
netstat -no

btw, what's the local connection which is established. Usually, two ports right next to each other connect locally, in this :confused: case, 1440 anbd 1441, I've had it at various different ports but they always are right next to each other and connect to 127.0.0.1
