Opened my Comodo Firewall screen and there are 20 outbound connections and 4 inbound connections.
The outbound connections are actually fluctuating between 14-24 as I watch. BTW, this is a new install of Windows 7 as of 4 days ago.

What are these connections and which (if any) should be of concern?

New Info:
As soon FireFox is closed, the outbound drops to 8 connections.
Then as soon as FireFox is opened, it jumps back to over 22 connections. Once FireFox opens, the home page is www.google.com so not sure why the number of connections jump and if its typical.
