I really couldn't see what area of the forum to post this in so this is where I thought it might best go. MODs, move it to the appropriate forum area if there is a better place for it please.

Was watching Wire Shark processing my LAN card while I'm on FireFox and noticed some IPs that kinda struck me as strange [78.46.33.133].

If I just do nothing and watch it process I can see the handshakes with the router and then I see an encrypted handshake with an IP that I don't understand why it's talking to.

I do a TRACERT of the IP and it leads me to a site in Germany.

What is this IP? And why is my computer connecting to it?

Actually, I think I've figured it out.

I was thinking an a thought hit me. Since it was only happening on FireFox maybe it was an Add On. So I disabled all of them. And the problem went away. Then I put them back online one at a time. And I finally came to one that the IP started showing up again.

It is an Add On that displays the IP of the site I am currently on. I am making an assumption that the persion who wrote the Add on is from Germany, and he references an IP checking sight that is also located in Germany.

I will be looking into the Add On a little more closely when I get home and have the time to delve into the program a little more.

I may have to get rid of it if it is going to be doing more than just showing the IP of the site I'm at.

I just don't understand why it pings the site so often, and not just when I move to a different site in my browser.
