    When launching a java app from within eclipse (run/debug) that doesn't have a gui the firewall dialog (allow/deny) pops up and then just disappear leaving the app blocked for incoming connections. This was introduced in snow leopard and worked fine in leopard. Has anyone found a solution for this other than the radical of turning off the firewall all together?

    That's why some games don't work in Firefox but work in Safari. Try going to and "build your own car"

    So is it a Java or Firefox bug?
