Unable to add program to "Program Control" list

The "Program Control" tab in the Firewall settings does not allow me to perform any actions.

The list is empty, and the "add" button doesn't do anything.

I want to add a program. How do I do this?

I would recommend enabling Automatic Program Control in the Firewall settings and just let Norton add trusted programs automatically.  Even with this disabled, you should be prompted to allow or block whenever you open a program that requests network access.

Enabling or disabling "Automatic Program Control" makes no difference to the (non)functioning of the "Program Control" list.

Besides, as already stated, I need to add to this list as NIS does not handle some programs correctly.

Have you tried a firewall reset, using the option in the Firewall settings?
