It was the cache file for the language file at /var/ipfire/langs that 
was playing me a trick.
I removed it, and then the menu option was available.

I've now made a pull request for this
The code is very much based on firewalllogip.dat and showrequestfromip.dat.

Those two files does not look too nice, and therefore my files does not 
look too nice.
I was thinking about doing some major restructuringing, by having one 
"showrequestfrom.dat" file
which could handle taking a contraint on source ip, source ip country or 
destination port, but it would require
some major work, especially since it seems the code is using "comma 
separated query string" when handling a HTTP GET,
instead of individual URL parameters.

So since I understand that the major web GUI code overhaul will happen 
in 3.x, I decided to not do any major changes now.
