        i just noticed that my browser has an Amazon ec2 ip address in sockets for the term the browser is open. i cannot clear it unless i shut down the browser. when i re-open it sets up again for the entire session. i am not a network person im just asking why when Akamai had the contract? with my ISP i could clear the history and the link would go away quietly. anybody?

        see:

        slow news day so,
        in Windows i get rid of (unwanted) long timer ttl’s with cmd> “ipconfig /flushdns”
        in linux (ubuntu)
        1.) sudo /etc/init.d/dns-clean restart and
        2.) sudo /etc/init.d/networking force-reload
        seems to send them flying back to wherever they came from…

        i think i figured the changes out:

        Firefox 67 added optional “Cryptominers,” and “Fingerprinters,” to the Privacy and Security settings:

        Latest Firefox Release is Faster than Ever

        the resetting 10 minute Amazon AWS Elastic Cloud ttl mystery is solved (for me)

        (tail btwn legs) my apologies … i’m testing the keepalive timers on a full install of ubuntu 16.04 and the amazonec2 behaves properly. using terminal >netstat -atunop, and the ff67 built-in about:networking the sticky socket problem has dissapated to 10 seconds rather than 10 minutes i was getting before. the problem must be with using ubuntu 16.04 live usb as far as i can tell

          finally got it, i had the about:config “dom.push.enabled” set to true which causes the long repeating (600 seconds) keepalive ttl(s) in about:networking>Sockets. when “dom.push.enabled is set to false it uses a 40 second keepalive. i verified it with “sudo netstat atunop (and\or atuop)” in Firefox 68.0.2
