Default Firefox and Norton Security Question

I downloaded firefox and when I tried to use the program, Norton Internet Security 2005 (which I just installed aswel) told me that firefox.exe is trying to connect to a DNS server and it recommended that I don't allow it to connect.

It gave me 3 choices:

-always allow this program to connect
-never allow this program to connect
-custom configure internet access

I think it was called a DNS server but I'm not sure now. Also the choices it gave me were not exactly what I put above but I couldn't remember them exactly.

What should I do?
