Firefox 36 since update comodo blocks ONE kind of attempt
« on: February 25, 2015, 04:19:13 PM »
Since i updated to firefox 36, comodo blocks continously attempts of firefox to connect to
from port 1900 to port 1900
destination 239.255.255.250

WITHOUT question.
Every 2 minutes two attempts.

As long as firefox is running.
I erased the former rule, and gave firefox the web browser rule again. It doesnt stop.

Perhaps related to UPnP? But what would Firefox need that for?

Edit: Or perhaps specifically SSDP? http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_Service_Discovery_Protocol

I updated the portable firefox i have as well, to test what happens.

It isnt affected.
So what does this mean?

Yes, i just found that as well.

So do we have a questionable function in firefox here,
or does the rule of comodo doesnt fit?

How to disable that function? Every two minutes without reason....

The web browser rule of comodo doesnt fit anymore to firefox.
No matter if the function of firefox is justified or not.

Would the web browser rule give any kind of security, or is it just so people easily get a web browser to work?
If firefox needed such a rule to be safe, you should not use the program.
So for now, outgoing only is the way to go.

It's probably part of that new configuration-less conversation thing they integrated from Telefonica.

I hate this kinda of bloatware.  I want a web browser, not skype.

That doesnt look like the reason

I don't have such a problem with Comodo 8 and FF 36 under Windows 8.1 x64.

Because you dont use the predefined policy of web browser for it.

You should be kidding me!
Guess what - I am using exactly the predefined web browser settings for firefox.exe and I don't see a single event related to firefox in the firewall log.
I don't care if you believe me or not. :)

G.

That just proves that your firewall is not set to ask about this kind of different connection, when you allow any other.

Check if the web browser rule covers this traffic,
then come back here.

Which firefox do you use?
What alarm setting do you use for firewall? (Ask for each port, each ip, each protocol, highest alarm setting?)

Btw, since the nightly build of firefox there are reports of this behaviour in combination with comodo.

I am using Mozilla Firefox 36 Final.  Before I was on the beta channel 36 beta I and updated Mozilla from the offline installer (if that make some sense).
On my work computer Mozilla Firefox automatically updated itself  from 35.0.1 Final to 36 and then Windows Firewall displayed the following message: "Windows Firewall has blocked some functions of this program." Unfortunately I didn't have the time to check further.

Also I have a lot of services disabled (like file and printer sharing, server service, ssdp discovery, netbios over tcp etc.) and I always uninstall Mozilla Maintenance Service from the Control Panel and maybe that does the difference.

Did you ever check the screenshots in my previous post. :)
