I have a problem. I can watch youtube and porn, but certain streams and videos are not running. It’s obvious, that my restrictive firewall is the reason for it. I have and want very restrictive rules: By default all connections are blocked, and there are just some exceptions added like firefox, mumble or stuff which is necessary for a properly running system.
Unfortunally it doesn’t work; so it’s clear: It doesn’t work, no matter if I use “trustful application” or “web browser”. So the reason for the blocking problems need to be somewhere else and not firefox.exe …
any other suggestions ?
Btw, you dont need to allow ingoing traffic!
See it like a “permission to start a conversation”. Its you who want to establish a connection. So you need usually OUTgoing permissions. Only if someone should be able to connect on his own, you would need an ingoing rule. It should be specific.
As the new version of comodo has been released, why not make a fresh installation and start with a new configuration?
Test the browser as first.
Before you start to make settings, make sure that you switched to the desired mode (proactive mode)!
Dont press too fast ok.
I would not initially suspect the firewall but the browser with this type of behaviour. Does this happen across multiple browsers? Or is it specific for certain browser(s)? Can you provide us with recent links for testing?
In browsers see if you have referrrer logging disabled or not. Some sites don’t work properly with referrer logging disabled.

Fuck folks. It’s SO fucking easy to solve this issue and ANY issue of this kind. Why haven’t you told me ?! I’ve found the solution by myself:
ANYTHING isn’t running, probably because of the firewall ? SIMPLY have a look at what !
For this open COMODO CIS Premium, then open “showing firewall results” and there ANYTHING which is blocked is displayed ! So you see concretely what the problem is.
And now that you concretely know the problem simply additionally open “Network security rule” and there create an exception for the files which got blocked - you even can do this so concretely that you only open the necessary ports because at “showing firewall results” you not only see the struggling files, but also what ports are necessary for getting the files running properly. If one uses an all blocked rule it’s important to put the exceptions above the all block rule in the list or otherwise the exception won’t work.
AND READY ! SO EASY !
This was fucking important for me; someone who wants to get his boss to let him move away and from that point only doing home work instead work at the office of the boss has a problem if livestreaming is blocked !
