The Firefox 1.5 release notes say

"Some firewall software may silently block Firefox from running. Most firewalls will ask you whether to allow a program to connect to the Internet. It's important that you always grant Firefox access. If you deny access, you must go into the firewall's configuration program and re-allow access. Even when disabled, some firewalls deny access. Here is some more information on configuring your firewall."

This is the number 1 support issue in the forums, and nothing's been done in Firefox 2.0 to mitigate it, so we should definitely include in it Firefox 2.0's release notes.
