Hello,

Ever since I updated to Firefox 67, I've noticed firefox.exe constantly connects to IP addresses such as:
x.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com

Even if I block that particular IP address, firefox.exe finds another similar address, and continues to connect over and over again. It won't stop. I've ruled out viruses and my operating system, so I know it's coming from firefox.
It even continues to connect while browsing a blank page with no user activity.

How can I find out what's causing firefox to connect to these addresses so persistently? Thanks.

- I have disabled all telemetry parameters in about:config.
- I have no sync accounts. I don't login to anything.
- I have turned off crash reports, experiments, tests, pings, or anything else that sends info to Firefox.
- I have turn off auto updates for Firefox and any installed extensions.

Again, this is something new. Firefox didn't behave like this before. I updated to the latest version of Firefox, so it's still using my old config settings. Whatever I disabled should still be there. My browser shouldn't be connecting to anything while browsing a blank page. Thanks.
