strange behaviors with media programs

I'm having strange problems with media programs after setting up a
firewall with guarddog. The media programs won't open. The splash
screen pops up, but the window never loads for gxine, juk, noatun. For
amarok, the window opens, but the mousy busy cursor keeps spinning as
though it's trying to load something. I have to kill it to get it to
stop. Kaffeine starts but when I try to change the settings for xine,
it freezes and the xine settings menu never opens.
I think it's firewall related, because as I try different settings in
the firewall, when I hit "apply" all the media programs pop open
instantly and there's a blast of sound from the speakers which seems to
be the sum of all the start up sounds.
What does a firewall have to do with media programs and what settings do
I need to prevent this inteference?
