Hi, I have the same issue. Edge just doesn't work properly, pages load after ages, keeps circling on the top tab and chrome works instantly, I have edge with ESET on my laptop and it works perfect.
I just installed AVAST couple days ago it was working fine as free, then I just upgrade to premium using the 60 free days and the issues started.

I tried to remove all the EDGE Rules, I saw there was Smart rule and 2 other IN OUT.  then I use ASK to open edge from scratch (ending from task manager) then it ask for permission and it works fine. I tried ending again and it works

I am also experiencing the same issue of 2 different PCs. When the firewall is set to "Ask", edge is somewhat blocked bu only for 1 or 2 minutes.

First of all I don't use MS Edge, I don't particularly like chromium based browsers (including Google Chrome) so I can't speak from personal experience.

In all honesty you should start your own new topic as much will have changed in almost a year since the last post not just in Avast but also in Edge (a Chromium based browser).

That said - Personally I wonder why many are choosing the Ask mode in the Firewall, popular, common programs aren't going to suffer.  The idea of Smart Mode is to remove much of the hassle/interrogation by the firewall whilst still protecting the system. 

Don't loose sight of the fact that there other shields protecting your system, the File System Shield, Web Shield and also the Network Shield.  These should limit and connections made by the system (etc.) both outbound and inbound.

I also don't understand why Edge is getting hit as even in Ask Mode for Edge "Ask me to allow or block Internet connection for new Apps", it isn't a new App as such, unless it is changing so frequently as to require that interrogation. 

I just wonder if you haven't also got a restriction on Edge in the Network Shield ?

I'm on Windows 11 and have no delay or problems opening Edge.
I have both the latest version and the beta version on my system and there is no delay in either version.
