thought i'd just check if its part of WoW, what it does, or if its something malicious.
The BrowserProxy should only be opening connections when it's pulled up by hitting the "?" button in game. We have seen cases where security programs will interfere with the BrowserProxy and create secondary issues though.
While I don't recommend it, you can disable the BrowserProxy as you have been and play the game. You would just need to use the website if you wished to create a support ticket.

Once the ticket has been entered, WowBrowserProxy should drop the persistent connection. This can be accomplished by restarting the process, which wouldn't create a persistent connection until you pressed the red question mark again.
If nothing is interfering with WowBrowserProxy.exe Then it only opens a connection when you have the in game browser open. They are using Chromium embedded as the browser. I use a program to monitor my network activity and it opens and closes only when I open the in game browser.

It will only close if you disable it or close the game completely. You do not need the WoW browser proxy to access anything in the game including opening a ticket and using the in game shop. I smell deception. Blizzard, care to explain why this is happening and what are you doing with the information that is being gathered?
