My issue is that Firefly is always “Starting” “Restarting” or “scanning” and thus I have never been able to access the web-based configuration settings. I just upgraded to the latest Mac version form the nightlies page and so far seem to have the same issue.
That being said, FF works just fine streaming all of my mp3 files under iTunes. My goal is to be able to get into the configurations setting and add a library so I can see if I an stream FLAC files.
For example, I get this in my log and never stops saying “Firefly is starting”:

Try changing your “share name” to something short, like “firefly”.
Holy smokes R-Man! It worked! I’m glad (for both of us) that I was so simple.
Thanks a bunch and have a nice weekend.
