Firewall Alert and Firefox

Windows XP 32 bit…Every 5 or 10 seconds I get a firewall alert about firefox is trying to connect to the Internet. I have tried allowed request, treat this application as web browser, treat this application as a trusted application, and I have put Mozilla on the trusted application and nothing works. I still get none stop pop-up! Thank the gods that I use Linux 90% of the time.

I think this is one of the v3 bugs that hopefully will be fixed in the next update. Perhaps a staff member can help in the mean time.

You are not alone on this one and I have the same problem as well. The only solution that works for me is to use training mode for both the firewall and defense+. However, the drawback of the training mode is that CFPv3 will allow most if not all applications to access the internet without warning you since it will use its white list to grant application access.

What I’m going to do now is to revert back to CFPv2.4… until all those bugs could be fixed.


What worked for me was to delete all rules for Firefox from Firewall>Advanced>Network Security Policy. The next time you run Firefox, you should get an “Allow” pop-up that has the option under the “Treat this Program as” drop-down of “Browser”.
