I have zone alarm and it is telling me that firefox wants to accept connections. Why would it want to do this? It may be a plugin, but I can't think of anything that would require that. Not that it would work through my firewall.

Stopping this dosn't seem to stop anything working, which makes me even more curious.

Does it happen when you're on a particular site? – balpha Aug 13 '09 at 16:58
What port is it trying to open? Does it happen in safe mode? – heavyd Aug 13 '09 at 17:02

It might be an add-on you're using. Make sure you don't have any exception for Firefox, then try disabling all add-ons, and enable one by one to see if something triggers your firewall.
