FireSheep not working

I have a Mac with Snow Leopard, and installed FireFox 3.6.something in addition to my latest version of FireFox.  I then installed FireSheep from the official website.

When I launch FireFox, and choose v3.6 and then choose "Start Capturing" in FireSheep all I am doing is capturing my own traffic to Yahoo and Google?!

Considering I have tried this at McDonalds, including now with someone behind me who is likely on some service that FireSheep captures, I think something is wrong...

I ran ifconfig, and made sure that I had the right settings based on this reference...

Any idea what may be wrong, if anything?!
