    Might well be an automatic update for one of your FF_extensions

    I run FF naked (ie: no extensions what so ever).

    update: the firewall just caught another spurious access to ( and I've added it to my list of DENY I/O addresses.

    also this AM, I ran the Winsock reset cmd (log file attached)
    just to purify the tcp stack. Side-effect was Runtime Error in C++ library
    during startup, but system still runs.

    In addition, before FF was launched, I had Thunderbird running and just guess...
    the cursor started dancing!

    This is getting fun!
