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.
