Firewalls


#1

I just downloaded FireFox, but i cant use it to get on the internet, it says a firewall may be blocking it.


#2

Start>Control Panel>Windows Firewall>Exceptions>(look for Firefox and check the box) if u can’t find it click on the “Add Program” button and search for the Firefox.exe and click ok. That should be it.
