Open Firefox, and an the address bar, type *about:config* and hit enter. It
will bring up a registry-style configuration editor. Right-click anywhere on
the config and select *New -> String*. It will pop up a dialog box asking
your for the name. Type *network.security.ports.banned.override* then hit
enter. Then, when asked for the value, type the port numbers you wish to
access, separated by commas, eg. *95,113* and hit enter again.
