Ok, so i'm posting this issue here so maybe some interested people can see it. From the new 21 avast beta, the firewall toasters are really getting annoying. Not visually, but with the screen reader, every few minutes it says "pane" and then it puts me in this firewall thing where it says that it allowed some program to access the network. Thing is, is there even any way to disable these kinds of alerts? because this is now getting annoying as hell, and i think this should be implemented a bit differently.

Hi, you can adjust/disable it in the firewall settings.

Thanks. I'll try. Although I wish there was a settings to add apps that wouldn't pop up toasters, but those that would, so say that there was something new trying to contact the network it would pop up, but if dropbox wanted to update itself it wouldn't.

You're welcome. Unfortunately, I can't say if there might be any issues with your screenreader involved.

It's not my screen reader, it's just how avast works. Thanks anyway. will figure it out.

Hi strakl,

thanks for reporting the issue. Do you know what app is firewall notifying you about? Is it the screen reader itself or a different app? Is the "Show notification about newly created allow rules" option allowed in your Firewall settings?

Best regards,
HK

No, it's notifying me for example, firewall has allowed dropbox installer to access the network, etc. do you get what i mean? and the thing goes away so fast but let's say i'm typing a document and this pops up, it goes to the window and dis appears if i don't click on it after a second or 2 and it's rather frustrating. Whenever something accesses the network, it shows that popup where it says that an app has been allowed and you have the close button.

Hey guys, another update, I have discovered that this isn't cause of the firewall toaster, it's allmost like sometimes something's trying to pop up, but when i asked my sighted people they have told me that thing shows up, that an app has accessed the network and that avast has allowed it, whenever something accesses the network, avast will display this weird thing for a second and dis appear, interrupting me.
