I installed a fresh F11, it is up to date.
Everything I described to you throughout the thread (I worked with F13 at that
time) is valid for F11 as well. The firewall is OK.
As I mentioned already, the last chance is to check dependencies (packages).
This is what my F11 system shows as a reference:

# yum list *system-config-firewall*

system-config-firewall.noarch                1.2.16-3.fc11             installed

If the above verification does not result in finding a discrepancy, you
basically should drop your F11 installation as not trustworthy (for whatever
reason: you got that iso from a funny source, perhaps you used outside repos,
you could have been hacked, whatever ...).
F11 has reached an end-of-life point anyway (no official support/updates) and
considering that Fedora is a fast moving target with frequent releases, it is
rather advantageous for all of us "fanboyz" to move on to debug the next
