[clug] browser connection question

First, I apologise for interrupting the less technical discussions going on...

I start firefox and have nothing open. I am observing the activity on my privoxy log.

I connect to DuckDuckGo and see that connection in the log.
Without any query I close the window, then even clear cookies and the cache.

About 3 minutes later I see a connection
	"CONNECT duckduckgo.com:443 HTTP/1.1" 200 257620
The log shows activity without delay and the messages are timestamped anyway.

What is causing this? I expected the closed tab to be done with this site.

<OT> As an aside, I see a connection to www.eff.org:443 every 5 minutes. And I thought
I disabled all those pesky features. Sad to see Mozilla diverging so far from the
original manifesto of openness and treating the user as in charge.</OT>
