Configuring Panda Internet Security

This article is no longer maintained, so its content might be out of date.

Panda Internet Security is a program with a firewall component that controls access to the Internet. If Panda Internet Security does not recognize Firefox (as it might not, following an update to Firefox), it may prevent Firefox from loading pages. This article describes how to configure Panda Internet Security to allow Firefox to access the Internet.

These instructions are written for Panda Internet Security 2008. Other versions of Panda Internet Security may require a different procedure
  1. Right-click the Panda icon in the System Tray and click Open Panda IS 2008.
  2. In the Security protection section, click the down arrow . The Security protection section will expand.


  3. Click the Settings... link in the Security protection section. The Panda Internet Security Settings window will appear.


  4. Click the Firewall icon on the left side of the Settings window to open the Firewall protection screen.
  5. In the Programs with access to the network section, click Settings... to open the Programs with external access window.


  6. Look for Firefox in the list of programs with external access. If it is there, click on its entry and click Remove program. If it is not there, skip to the next step.


  7. Click Add Program to open the Add Program window. Now, add Firefox:
    • Click ... to navigate to the Firefox installation directory and choose firefox.exe (e.g. C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\ ) The path to Firefox should be displayed in the Path field.
    • Make sure Action is set to Inbound and outbound


  1. Click OK to close the Add Program window.
  2. Click Close to close the Programs with external access window.
  3. Click OK to close the Panda Internet Security Settings window.
  4. Click the X in the top-right corner of the Panda Internet Security 2008 window to close it.

Firefox should now be able to access the Internet.
