To my mind, however, a good firewall is one that does ask questions and expects you to "train" it to handle your own computer's software configurations and internet usage.

But I still don't get why a firewall cannot just detect the harmful connections rather than every single connection like an antivirus program

I have been trying various antiviruses myself (probably more than 20 brands) from the last 36 months, and I find myself always preferring the ones with "Install and Forget" feature. Which the antivirus im using now is perfect, it doesn't ask me unless it "REALLY" detects sth, only failed once.
And I read articles and discusssions on how important is to have a firewall. However, my experiences with firewalls were always bad. No matter whether its build-in in security suite or stand alone ones like zone alarm and etc, they always keep popping up and ask stupid q's like allow IE explorer or Firefox or even just installing new software.
Summing them all up, I'm trying to find a good firewall that doesn't ask as many q's and only use really little resources.

Firewalls are only good if they ask you what actions to take.
