  1. I have mozilla installed on my computer and it's my main internet browser. The question is why when i download bit torrent or bear share the programs wont connect to the servers? Is there something i have to do to Mozilla to make it work and if so what and how?

    Your problems with BearShare and Bittorrent have nothing to do with your browser. Most likely you forgot to open the correct port in firewall.

    Once you download your torrent client see what port is set for its use. There will be a Test button to see if the port is working/open. If its not then you might change the port or try forwarding that particular port.
    Check Wikipedia on Port Forwarding...
    Good Luck.:)

    Also you should make your torrent client a firewall exception by going to Windows Security. (If not automatically done).
