Firewall widget loses lines on each ajax update in 2.2 RC
Hi, I just updated my firewall setup at home (running inside Vbox VM).
The firewall widget seems to have a small issue.
Each time a new item is supposed to be refreshed (pushing an old item out) it instead completely removes the line.
That is you begin say with a firewall widget with 5 lines and on each updates it loses a line until it is just the title and no items in it.
Should fix the rows disappearing and a bunch of other things I noticed, that I mention in the pull request text.
Thanks a bunch, it solved the issue :)

It has the same fix for the disappearing rows, but has (hopefully) better stuff for handling the format of initially displayed rows, and rows added/updated by the Java Script, in a consistent way. Also it displays IPv6 addresses in square brackets [fe80:1::2:3] format so that a port number after an IPv6 address is not ambiguous - [fe80:1::2:3]:80
Its probably too late now with 2.2 release nearby, but I would like to suggest something.
Take a look at Snort logs widget.
Don't you think its format is more useful for displaying data?
That is make the widget in 3 columns:
2. Source interface
3. Source ip,port/Dest ip/port (as one column).
Right now ports usually get hidden because of insufficient widget width.
I don't have an systems with Snort - can you post a screenshot of a typical Snort widget output?
Then I can see if it would work well to do similar for Firewall Log widget.
I also have a slight problem with the firewall widget. On my system the logs have stopped updating in the widget since Dec 13 but they are logged correctly in Menu>Status>System Logs. I have updated 2.2RC snapshots daily since 2.2 was announced. I have cleared the logs in logs settings but that doesn't make any difference in the widget. I have also removed add readded the widget without effect. Please see the attached images. There is also a minor cosmetic issue with the traffic graph but that only occurs in Safari and not Firefox.
Here is an example screenshot showing both firewall widget and snort widget.
