I tried it briefly, but gave up, when I found that it doesn't support internet connections from behind a firewall, ...

I do not understand that. At one time, I was running TaxAct on a machine with Windows 95 Home on it and Microsoft Security Essentials on it and I think that had a simple firewall on it too.
