Is there a Fedora equivalent of this: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Firefox%20makes%20unrequested%20connections which is essentially a list of non user initiated connections Firefox may make?

What are you wanting to do exactly ? As far as I know all those options should work in Fedora.

You might want to look into a proxy server or iptables, sort of depends on if you are looking to filter web traffic or all traffic.

I think it would be quite difficult to come up with such a list for an entire Linux distribution. It would depend on the software packages that are installed and how you have configured them. If you want to know what connections your own computer is making, consider using network analysis tools like netstat (network connections) and tcpdump (tcp packets).

The question is a bit unclear, You want to identify or terminate those non user initiated connections ?

You can always get a list of connections by 'ss -ap' but I don't think you can segregate user and non initiated user connections.
