Thanks for splitting these much appreciated. I’ll slightly sharpen up the names myself if you don’t mind.

Hopefully a firewall expert mod will now investigate - that’s the advantage of splitting!

Best wishes


Thank you for your answer!


Confirmed Defect, switching back doesn’t work.

This bug was also reported in CIS 5 Beta, see this post.

OK its bug #252 in Bugzilla (mods tracking system)

Best wishes


Confirmed also.

Yep, I also can confiram this ! I’m using win xp sp3 x32 user account !

Good thing I’ve searched here to see if it was already submitted cause I was about to report this myself !

It’s not really a major bug but I hope it gets resolved !

Thanks !

Oh, and it’s not really necessary to untick “create rules for safe applications” to revert back !
You can also go to Firewall - Firewall Behaviour Settings and slide the arrow down to the desired level of security without unticking that option ! At least on my end works !

This appears fixed to me, can anyone confirm?


I can confirm.
