Firestarter Connection problem

I recently upgraded my kernel, and everything is fine apart from one issue.

I can't connect to the internet with my firewall running. I can ping, and receive packets from a site, but firefox, links, pidgin and kmail etc won't connect. I have to stop the firewall to connect.

I don't know why. I'm using Firestarter, and haven't changed anything in the firewall since I rebooted into my new kernel.The old kernel works fine with the firewall.

Any help appreciated.
