Edit: Just re-read and noticed that 3rd party firewalls are not affected.

I guess people can whitelist Firefox themselves in Windows Firewall.

Another thing(s) to add, firefox is going to drop sha1 support. Now some https sites will have the security warning related to this in the 'web console' of developer tools.
Another one is, if the received data cannot be verified, a new error message is displayed.( This happened when I tried BC over a 56k dialup)
Fox is getting clever to protect its users.
Just my obs....
