Let me explain better, if I have not been clear.
I had to uninstall Avast Free on my PC for another reason.
When I reinstalled it (the firewall is not among the components to choose) I no longer have the firewall available (it is only available for the premium version).
So I wonder if when you install Avast Free the firewall installation happens randomly?
Currently, the free version doesn't have a firewall unless you
install Avast One Essential. It comes with a basic firewall.

It's not true.
I installed Avast Free and the firewall was up and running.
Thank you and good day!

I understood that from your previous post.

Basically you were luck to have got it in the first place it isn't on a wide distribution.  Why you uninstalled it I have no idea, Avast doesn't retain data of your settings, components, etc. when you uninstalled avast free.  So you are effectively starting from scratch again and didn't get lucky this time around.

Can I not have the Firewall installed, I had to uninstall it because I already have Comodo and know running 2 firewalls is a bad idea. I tried to uninstall it but the customize option was gone and I could only uninstall it. Any difference between Avast One Essential and Free?
I have Opera, WOT, K9 Web Protection, Avast Free web shield and Behavior blocker only, Comodo Internet Security 10, and common sense. ^_^

Yes. During last 2 monthes. Avast was updated on Friday 19 Nov. Everything was ok/ But on Sat 20 after PC reboot firewall was blocked in Avast UI. Process is running. System (Win 8.1 64) shows that Avast FW is working. Repair does not help.

Hi,

Can you please provide us with a support file ID? https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/Submit-support-file
Can you also add screenshots of the firewall in Avast and system?

Hi! Screenhors here (in russian)
Firewall (брандмауэр) blocked in Avast UI
Firewall process is running
Security Center in Network Firewall - Avast is working.
PS. Icon Network analysis (Анализ сети) is from today morning.

Hi! Today I have successfully deinstalled Avast Firewall. One week ago when  problem with firewall was started I could not delite it. Now I can not see firewall
in the Avast component list, process is not running and Windows firewall works again.
I do not understand this game with firewall from Avast. It looks like Avast gave this feature, but after 2 monthes decide to take it back. At the same time, it was done incorrectly with problems described earlier and some mistakes in system logs (in AFD and RegBackup parts).

Hi,

We would need a support file to help determine why it is no longer available for you.

I am sorry for the confusion about a firewall presence in Avast Free. The reason why FW appeared in some free versions (21.8 and 21.9) is quite simple though - we needed to make sure that everything works flawlessly and FW will be accepted by users in their free editions. That is why we released the new firewall for a small amount of free users earlier and collected some feedback. Now, from 21.10 on, the FW will be available for download in the UI for all the free users. Premium users will have an extra tab with advanced features compared to the free version. https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=308695.0
