    Default ZA blocking Firefox

    Have an issue ZA Free Firewall ver. all-of-a-sudden is now selectively blocking Firefox 16.0.2, despite settings indicating it shouldn't. (This is not similar to the other FF and ZA problem , as I always disable the ZA firefox plugin anyway)

    The problem is ZA is selectively blocking FF access to internet (IE works fine, can ping, etc) despite the ZA settings saying not to:

    It used to work fine, but when this happened, I went and manually changed the firefox permissions to full, and still have the problem. I've tried both re-enabling and disabling the ZA plugin and still have the problem. An excerpt of the log confirms the block:

    In addition, I've tried: deleting the FF entry in ZA program access control list, rebooting, and ultimately re-installing ZA. Reinstalling worked briefly, but then the problem recurred. Any ideas what's going on?

    Default Re: ZA blocking Firefox

    As far as I can see the firefox settings are set to Custom. This means that even after re-install you have made some changes to the default. Did you? Go to ZA Tools --> Preferences --> Reset to default --> Reboot the PC.

    Does it work now? Is firefox set to AUTO (default)? What exactly is the customization that you do apply? Internet/Trusted zone changes? Other changes?
