hello i just installed R.H. 8.0 and it wont connect to the internet correctly, i believe it is because my firewall setting are set to high, because the mozilla page will load but after about a second it closes, I went into the firewall preferences and change the settings of high to off the click ok. i open mozilla and it closes again. i check the firwall prefs. again and there back to high again, because it didnt save my prefs. is there another way that i can go about saving the firewall settings so that i can browse the internet or a way to delete the firewall program and install it again, where would i be able to find the firewall program?

thanks in advance

*note i can connect to the internet, proof i used telnet to connect to my school server.

Mozilla could just be crashing, try a different browser, you may have konquror installed, or better, use lynx from a console/terminal screen. I highly doubt your firewall is is closing mozilla, cause that's not what firewalls do, but if your convinced, run

rgrep "high" /etc/*

And it should return something along the lines of firewall="high".
