2.3.4: Connections (States) with proto "icmp" show a source and a destination port
as you can see in the screenshot the state has a source and a destination port - both are equal.
Should ICMP have a port? Perhaps better show the type of icmp.
In System Log -> Firewall the ICMP messages do not have any port definitions. Perhaps there should be the type of ICMP message displayed, too.

Those are not ports. It's the ICMP request ID.
