McAfee firewall stops incoming access for firefox.exe

Since recent upgrade, McAfee alerts me that Firefox (and Thunderbird) .exe programs are trying to "accept incoming connections" from the internet. McAfee is set to allow only outgoing for these programs. This did not occur prior to recent upgrades. Should I set to allow incoming and outgoing, or does this represent another problem? (Recent McAfee virus scan found no problems.)
