    Hi. I just installed Comodo firewall yesterday. I have it set in Learning mode. I'm using Firefox, and when I open my browser, Comodo asks if I want to have Firefox act as a server. If I deny it, Firefox won't open. I have to allow Firefox to act as a server to open web pages. Why is this? I never let anything act as a server, and I'm not comfortable that I have to do it with Comodo.

    I only get the "trying to connect" message. Is there any extension in FF that would do this?

    This is probably FF loopback connection. (inbound from localhost (127.0.0.1))
