When I am changing the Firewall mode from “Ask to connect” to “Click to Block” it works immediately. However if in 1 minute or less I want to switch back then it doesn’t allow me.
Same happens if I change from “Click to Block” to “Ask to connect” and then try to change back.
It only allows setting the mode back 10-15 minutes later.
Hmm I tried to change my “click to block” to “ask to connect” only once before, but I do remember I couldn’t go back straight away as the button was disabled, so after a short while I came back and it did let me switch back, I’ll try to test it again today and see if it acts the same
I’ve been doing this with only a short delay all week. I tried it again just now and I could change it back within a 10 seconds.
I suspect that there is a time delay to make all the changes in the Windows Firewall. If that is true, then a slow computer with many applications will take longer but 10 minutes seems excessive.
One other user reported this problem a couple of years ago so it might be worthwhile following the same advice. That user never responded so I assume it resolved their problem:
Please uninstall GlassWire, reboot, then go to your Windows Firewall settings and click “restore defaults” then reboot again and reinstall our latest version with the “clean” option in the installer.
Please try “Ask to connect” and see if that fixes it.
I will ask our quality assurance team to try to recreate this. Thanks for your detailed reports.
