I thought about it, but just in case I wanna keep it on. What puzzles me is why does the warning keep popping up, even though I have the apps in the safe list (in the advance properties section)...

Whoops, totally missed the printerAgent

Last thing you can try is dumping the firewalls .plist and rebooting (A plist is basically a fancy txt file with settings written in it.)
Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences/com.apple.alf.plist

Once you do that all apps you open will reask for permission and maybe the other problem will be fixed as well.

No, it should still be on. If you unsure just turn the firewall off/on in the system preferences.
