I have recently had an issue with Firestarter preventing Firefox accessing the Internet. I have used Firestarter in the past with Hardy Heron and recently switched to Precise Pangolin.
The policy settings I used with Hardy for Firestarter are:
outbound traffic policy restrictive by default - whitelist traffic HTTP 80 - everyone HTTPS 443 - everyone POP3 110 - everyone SMTP 25 - everyone
these settings worked fine on Hardy and until this past Friday worked fine on Precise. Then I started to get the message
Server not found when opening Firefox. The only way to access the Internet is to disable the firewall. In case it's a hardware issue, I am using a Zepto Znote 3215W laptop (wired Internet connection).
Am I doing wrong somewhere?
Any help greatly appreciated (I'm still learning about Linux).
