     Just a thought...when you look at the bottom of your firefox window,
do you see a small box that says, "Tor Enabled" in green lettering?  If it
has red lettering saying, "Tor Disabled", try clicking on it.

     If you are running tor only as a client, you should not need to do
anything to your router.  If you are running tor also as a relay, then you
do need to set RDR rules for your ORPort and, optionally, DirPort.  tor does
not directly provide any sort of UDP service to the outside world, so no,
you needn't worry about doing anything about UDP at all in your router for
tor operation.
