Ever since I installed the latest version update to the Comodo firewall, I cannot use virtual mode in the firewall or in Comodo Dragon and Comodo Ice Dragon. When I try, the regular browser will close and then freeze. The virtual version will never open and most times totally freezes my computer forcing me to use the power button to restart the computer. Anyone have this problem or offer any solutions. Thank you
Can you see what is making the computer freeze? Or is the freeze preventing you from seeing that?
I should point out that I am having no other problems with either browser or the firewall. Or any other program. When I try to switch within either browser to virtual mode, the regular browser closes but the virtual mode never opens. All I see is that MS hourglass going around in circles. No matter how long I wait nothing happens. Usually, the entire computer is frozen and I am unable to do anything at all and have to use the power button to shut down. If not the task manager will show that the virtual mode is running but it never actually opens up. This happens also if I try the virtual mode within the firewall and in both Dragon and Ice Dragon. And it only started with the latest update to the firewall.
This sounds like a bug to me.

I am having this exact problem and it’s 6 months later - all new download.
