Moving to MozillaZine Tech as this is not a SeaMonkey Support issue.

Hi John,
As I've never used either of those, I cannot help....
but, I do run COMODO free firewall & it performs exactly like a good firewall should.
Bit "noisy" at 1st but that proves that it's doing it's job.

Stay safe.

Hi Limpet,
So, do you think that Comodo is better than Windows firewall?
Although Bluhell calls itself a firewall, I don't believe it meets the criteria of a firewall, in the traditional sense. I had trouble finding out much about it, but it's very small. It's an add-on, as is Speed Dial.

Hi John,
I'm not on WIN10 yet, so cannot comment on the features etc., of their firewall.
It appears, by all accounts, to be O.K. in WIN 10.

I just know that COMODO works very well, checking both inbound & outbound requests
as well as asking you when a new, unknown program/updater etc., wants to connect to the WWW.

Just use the inbuilt firewall & see how it goes.
You should be fine.

Stay safe.

i use Bluhell on Seamonkey and find it very ok, also it is found in the listing, helpful, but on certain sites it would not function so well as Ublock Legacy (tried on Firefox), my experience.

Hi kapqa,
So, you would recommend Ublock Legacy?
