I want to upgrade to Avast 7, but there's no point if it's going to mess up Comodo. I hope this problem gets sorted out soon.
Avast Free 20.3.2405 - Comodo 12.2.2.7036 Firewall with D+ - Winpatrol Free.
On demand - MBAM - Super Antispyware.
Windows 10 64bit - 16GB Ram.

Like to add latest version 5.10.228257.2253 blocks FF 11.0 if policy is set through Firewall>Network Security Policy.  Change is made @ FF line from Web browser to Blocked Application and works as it should.  FF is blocked.  Changing setting back to Web Browser restores connectivity.

Bug in COMODO firewall does only seem to affect Win 7 systems from what I've seen here.  What I'd like to find out why this is so, and why Win Firewall is also affected in Windows 7.

Bug does not seem to affect XP versions.
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 22H2 Avast Premier Security version 23.11.6090 (build 23.11.8635.809)
 UI version 1.0.788.  Windows 11 Pro 22H2 Avast Premier Security version 23.11.6090 (build 23.11.8635.809)

Hi guys,


Concerning the fix from avast! side: I doubt we would fix this, making changes in the code, so that other firewalls block our traffic is exactly the opposite what we try to do.



Lukas.

So in making this statement i would have to take it that Avast does not see this as a security issue?? When you consider all of the unsuspecting, don't know otherwise  Avast users around the world that are using Windows Firewall, Comodo Firewall and a couple of others mentioned such as Private Firewall

It means Firewalls should be able to block it, or malware also can bypass Firewalls. It is Firewalls' fault (security hole).
Fixing avast to be blocked by Firewalls does not solve this problem. No one wants malware to bypass Firewalls using same technique.

I get what you are saying, so the reality is without beating around the bush Comodo and Windows Firewall aren't up to scratch security wise and as i have read Online Armour is the one to have? Sorry i just need to hear the cold hard facts so i can make a sound decision without pussy footing around.

PrivateFirewall, Outpost Firewall and Online Armor all work fine with avast, iv been testing all of them this week  :)

Its' also just the outbound protection of the windows firewall that causes some problems but in it's default state it works fine.

Thank you both, sorry for being a blunt. I just got to my wits end dredging through threads not only here and running multiple scenarios myself to try and sort it that it got to a stage i just needed some straight answers.

My apologies and thank you both

Craig,  of these 3 third party firewalls, which is likely to be the quietest after the initial learning period?  As per my signature, you can see that I'm using Sygate and it's catching changes to Firefox, etc. after they are updated and asking.  However, it's been EOL for some time now.

Even though i have a Pro license for Outpost which the latest version 7.5.2 i think is there best version yet for compatibility and system lightness but i think i still prefer Privatefirewall more. I only recieved a couple of popups which were for my mobile broadband and Total Media Theater in that whole week of testing and the lightness on the system was excellent, it feels lighter than the windows firewall.
Theres a very informative pdf file on there website that is well worth downloading and reading, good to keep for future refrence :)

Thanks, Craig.  I have Private Firewall install and the pdf downloaded.  I'll read thru the pdf, and likely change over to it sometime this next week.

No worries, enjoy  :)

Just to update you PrivateFirewall doesn't stealth my ports properly with mobile broadband but does work fine with routered connections, Outpost is superior concerning mobile broadband.

Outpost is superior concerning mobile broadband.

+1 I strongly agree with craigb as I have mobile broadband too using Outpost Pro, craigb did you get yourself a lifetime license when you got your Outpost Pro FW :)
