No, the regex work great with all ip, I'm sure, but, I know that firestarter have a lot of other problem.

Install And run syslog-ng

That patch doesn't help; the regex you've added only matches IP addresses where all octets are 2 digits, which excludes the majority of IPv4, and all IPv6.

firestarter has been abandoned for years, and does not support IPv6, so I would suggest starting to look for an alternative.

/etc/firestarter/ is not in the package; it must be generated by firestarter itself; best to file an upstream bug I guess.

/etc/firestarter/ script was wrong in my installation.
I have changed:
IP=`/sbin/ifconfig $IF | grep inet | tr -s ' ' | cut -d \ -f 3`
IP=`/sbin/ifconfig $IF | grep inet | tr -s ' ' | cut -d \ -f 3 | grep -oE "[0-9][0-9]*\.[0-9][0-9]*\.[0-9][0-9]*\.[0-9][0-9]*"`
to prevent this error:
Bad argument `fe80::ea40:f2ff:fe08:6262'
Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.
