    I have Comodo firewall installed on my computer for three days now. I have it setup with all the default settings. Why do I keep getting these pop ups two or three times a day asking me the same questions..........

    Do I want to allow Firefox to connect to the internet? I click Always Allow.
    Do I want to allow Firefox to act as a server? I click Always Allow.
    Do I want to allow Incredmail to connect to the internet? I click Always Allow.
    Do I want to allow Incredimail to act as a server? I click Always Deny.

    I'm getting tired of answering these same questions. When do they stop?

    The easy answer: when all the rules are done. If something is added to Firefox, or uses Firefox, another question.
    Things should settle down after a few days. How long have you been using it?

    Hi CReal,

    Because if I don't allow Firefox to act as a server, I can't connect to the internet. Comodo is the only firewall that requires that I give Firefox server rights. That is one reason why I removed Comodo the last time I used. I'm thinking about removing it again. I'm not really comfortable with it.

    These permissions are for loopback connections.

    Three days now.

    That's what I've heard. I still can't get used to it. :)

    If you've done all you do normally with Comodo active, it should start to calm down.
    Most likely what's annoying you is Application Behaviour Analysis.
    Give it 3 more days if you can. Use everything you can think of. It could very well stop tomorrow.

    Graystoke,

    To avoid even more alert windows, go to "Security > Advanced > Miscellaneous" and set the "Alert Frequency Level" to Very Low ;)

    VaMPiRiC_CRoW,

    I'll let Comodo do it's thing for another day. If things don't quiet down, I'll give your suggestion a try.
