Comodo Free Firewall 5.3.176757.1236 Steals focus / focus lost to


I have read that other people have had this issue too. Comodo Firewall Updater steals focus from Full-Screen games, and very often from Media Player Classic Home Cinema. This was supposed tobe fixed in 5.3.176757.1236.

BUT! I still have this issue. This version didn’t fix the issue. Why can’t you just fix this simple problem. It is so freaking annoying when I watch a nice movie and suddenly I have to go to the computer to put it back to fullscreen because the stupid Comodo steals focus from MPC HC.

Hey and warm welcome to comodo forums.

can you tell us in which way comodo steals the focus? Does it give any pop up.

An alternative solution when you watch a movie is to put Comodo in game mode (right click on CIS icon and the click on Game mode).

Could you post back if activing game mode helps.

Please consider filing file a bug report in the Bug Reports - CIS board following the format as described in FORMAT & GUIDE - just COPY/PASTE it!.

Confirmed that Comodo Firewall keeps stealing focus. A second Comodo icon appears in the system tray for a few seconds just as it happens and then disappears. No popup messages appear.

Try to disable in general of preferences the first three options (CIS —> more —> Preferences —> General)

and try to see if game mode helps (right click on comodo tray icon and click on “game miode”).
