Thanks!  I didn't know where to start looking!  Interesting, the four
ports listed as banned are the four that are needed by TOR:

I selected to "reset", restarted firefox and was able to get to the
polipo config.  But once I restarted TOR, the entry was put back.  So
I'll head back to TOR's site to try to find out what's going on.

Thanks again!
