changing firewall settings is extremely unresponsive. Everytime I change a firewall setting (e.g. turn on/off firewall | Switch mode “Click to connect”). I am seeing the three dots progress indicator for a long time > 15minutes until the setting is applied. Often the progress indicator gets totally stuck and doesn´t come back at all. Also restarting the GlassWire Control Service is not working as long as the UI is in progress. This makes the firewall almost unusable.
I noticed this for a long time now. I have a Thinkpad P52 notebook workstation running Windows 10 Pro. I already noticed that also on another Thinkpad W540 notebook workstation.
I already reset the windows firewall to the default and did a clean reinstall of GlassWire 2.3.321 without any improvement. Changing the firewall settings in Defender directly is performant without any wait time.
