I find that without disabling the firewall before opening the Firefox 3.0.5, Internet Explorer and Thunderbird or Vallen POP3 checker then enabling it once again Internet browser and POP3 checking is blocked. Any ideas I have looked at the support page and no go. The eset tray icon after using their support ticking web browsers identifying them as browsers in the tray is now orange. I am wondering whether it's possible to disable the firewall permanently and use Zone Alarm Pro instead. Moshe I am a newbe to Eset.
