Why is there a connection to www.dslreports.com active in my

Computer?
I was looking at open ports in my computer just now, via a pgm called currports, and found the following connection:
System 4440 TCP 53618 192.168.0.10 80 http 209.123.109.175 www.dslreports.com Established N/A 5/3/2013 1:10:28 AM Account Management - Mozilla Firefox
I will be very interested to learn why since I have not connected to this site in several months, there was an active connection to my system. Please reply via my most active email address:alcampbell@stny.rr.com
thank you

If you have an addon called the DSLR Notifier, that could account for the connection.

Another area that I'm not familiar with is RSS feeds.

In my Firefox, it is the DSLN Notifier extension.

Could be pulling the favicon for a bookmark, too.
