A. THE BUG
[ol]- Can U reproduce the problem & if so how reliably?: always
If U can, exact steps to reproduce. If not, exactly what U did & what happened: Make any unremembered-in-rules application connect anywhere.
If not obvious, what U expected to happen: The (allow/deny) window would appear on its previous location, not the right bottom.
Any software except CIS/OS involved? If so - name, & exact version: no
Any other information, eg your guess at the cause, how U tried to fix it etc: searched the config., but did not find anything.
B. MY SETUP (Likely the same for each issue, so you can copy forward)
[ol]- Exact CIS version & configuration: CF 6.1.275152.2801, user rule set
Modules enabled & level. D+/HIPS, Autosandbox/BBlocker, Firewall, & AV: Firewall only
Have U made any other changes to the default config? (egs here.): basic apps’ rules
Have U updated (without uninstall) from a CIS 5?: clean install
Have U imported a config from a previous version of CIS: NO
OS version, SP, 32/64 bit, UAC setting, account type, V.Machine used: Windows 8 Pro (build 6.2.9200), x64, default settings (UAC on), administrator priv. acc., no virtualization
Other security/s’box software a) currently installed b) installed since OS: a= Windows Defender Service b= (same)
Could you post some screen shots to illustrate this please?
I’ll consider this a GUI issue I think, as it is simply about Window locations, so won’t require the rest of the info in the standard format. (But please in future don’t edit the format )
Many thanks in anticipation
I’m posting four screen shots, but they will probably tell nothing by themselves, so in several steps what I did:
- Open an application, which is not in the application rules – cf shows a notification on a ?hardcoded? position. (screen 1)
- Move the notification somewhere else (screen 2)
- Select what to do with the connection – block the connection e.g. (screen 3)
- The next notification appears again on the default, predefined location. (screen 4)
I’ve got two monitors, left is the main one and it really bothers when any application connecting to the internet pops up a window (that would be fine), but in the middle of my current work (thats not fine). It is much more bothersome when working in a full-screen app or playing a game (such app. minimizes and I have to take care of the cf notification first).
If any other details are needed, just ask.

Thanks that’s really great, just checking I understood.
Moving to GUI bugs now.
Can you please check and see if this is fixed with the newest version (6.2.282872.2847)? Please let us know whether it is fixed or you are still experiencing the problem.
currently running newest version (6.2.282872.2847) and after repeating same steps as before, the problem remains absolutely unchanged.
Sorry to say this, but the fix did NOT help. :-TD
Thanks for checking this.
I’ve updated the tracker.
Can you please check and see if this is fixed with the newest version (6.3.294583.2937)? Please let us know whether it is fixed or you are still experiencing the problem.
currently running current version (6.3.294583.2937) and the problem remains the same, no change. The notification window keeps returning to the right lower corner – does not remember previous location.
Again sorry to say this, but the fix did NOT help. :-\
Thank you for checking this.
I’ve updated the tracker.
Can you please check and see if this is fixed with the newest version (7.0.313494.4115)? Please respond to this topic letting us know whether it is fixed or if you are still experiencing the problem.
Actually, upon further inspection I see that the devs have recategorized this as an enhancement. I will therefore move this to the Verified Wish Board. Please still let me know if this has been implemented for CIS version 7.0.313494.4115.
You may “categorize” this as “enhancement”, but to me it is FUNCTIONALITY imparement issue because the pop-up window BLOCKS my browsing, working with files, etc: it interferes with my other activities. You may say, “why don’t you just take care of pop-up window and then move on to other tasks”? It is impossible: there are gazillion pop-ups and each one has to be handled individually in my case (blocked or allowed using, say, range of IP addresses and range of ports). In order to do that, I have to use browser to lookup the pending IP, to find its DNS resolution and IP range of the server, etc. So, in many cases I need to move the pop-up window aside, almost out of view, and continue to work on something else. Note: all other applications in the entire World allow me to do that. Only Comodo does not allow me to do that. That is FUNCTIONALITY issue, very important FUNCTIONALITY deficiency. Not an “enhancement”.
Here, I will re-iterate IMPORTANT FUNCTIONALITY problem and DEFICIENCTY, just in case:
Comodo firewall does NOT remember position of pop-up (alert, or notification) window “app.exe is trying to connect to internet”. I re-position the window into convenient for me on the desktop place, but next time the popup window pops up in “default”, inconvenient to me location. This happens on any clean Window installation machine such as Windows 7, 32-bit: there is nothing installed on Windows except Comodo Firewall. No anti-virus, no other applications are installed. Only Comodo Firewall (version 6 or 7) is installed on clean Windows.
This is very easy to fix. The code must be implemented to remember the pop-up window’s position so that all or any future pop-up windows pop-up in that place where I placed my previous pop-up window, as follows:
a) before the pop-up window “xxx.exe is trying to connect to internet” disappears because timers expire or when user makes it go away, or if window is moved by user: remember the position of window (save position in variables).
b) next time the pop-up is scheduled to happen, use the values of those variables to position new pop-up windows.
