Visiting a website forces firefox to try to make several HTTPS connections to websites in my bookmarks.
Okay, this is slightly embarrassing but my curiosity and paranoia are stronger so I must ask:
While strolling through the interwebs, I happened upon a website with pictures of pretty girls. Nothing depraved, just pretty girls, 90% non-nude but for the sake of everyone here let's say NSFW.
Clicking on one of the pictures to see a larger view set off my newly installed firewall, notifying me of several HTTPS connection attempts to websites in my bookmarks, including:
FNBO Direct (banking)
What!? Obviously the banking stuff makes me nervous.
Anyone know how it's pulling these from my bookmarks and the security problems going on here?
I'm a former XP user, so I understand the dangers of spyware/trojans/etc... but the odd thing is I'm on OS X, using Firefox.
More info you might ask:
-These bookmarks aren't placed near each other in my bookmarks (different folders), yet they are all HTTPS.
-It's always the same websites each time I close firefox and try to reload the website, not random ones.
-Using Firefox 126.96.36.199 on a fully patched OS X 10.4.10
-Firewall is Little Snitch (there's a free demo of version 2.0 until Nov 17)
Here's a link to the website
