A few hours after installing Glasswire for the first time, Firefox and Internet Explorer stopped connecting to the Internet while Chrome continued to connect. At first, I could not figure out what was blocking Firefox and Internet Explorer because they worked fine for a few hours after install. I rebooted twice and exited out of Glasswire, but the lack of Internet connectivity continued for Firefox and Internet Explorer even after exiting the app. I started up Glasswire again, checked under Firewall, and noticed that it had blocked Internet Explorer, f.lux, Adobe Flash Player, Everything, Native Host for Apps, Firefox, and a few other apps. I’m not sure why Glasswire selected those specific apps. I clicked on the Firewall text to turn off the Firewall and I was able to recover Internet connectivity for Firefox and Internet Explorer. Anyway, I wanted to post this in case someone else has a similar experience with this behavior.
I was surprised that Glasswire would continue blocking Internet connectivity for those apps even after exiting out of the app. Is that the default behavior? Is there a setting that automatically re-enables Internet connectivity for all blocked apps after exiting Glasswire?
