How does AlternateServices.txt get populated?

How does AlternateServices.txt get populated?

It has URLs that I have never (consciously) visited with port numbers and epoch time stamps.
It is not from history/bookmark/etc

This text file is within my own user profile

I notice Ffox has the same file type but there, the file is empty.

I cant find any information on this file’s use.


Any ideas?

It's for HTTP Alternative Services. See RFC 7838
