at this time
An established connection is not broken with Active Connections for firefox.exe moved to Block. And a new connection for firefox.exe (calling Firefox) is not prevented (Firefox call lands on my homepage and other pages and is fully facing the net) with Active Connection for firefox.exe at Block.

Just me?


Thanks

Bottom Line: No member will ever know what's all the features "Under the Hood" of Webroot. ☺️
No user will ever know about all the features under-the-hood.
That's reasonable n' sad.

https://docs.webroot.com/us/en/home/wsa_pc_userguide/wsa_pc_userguide.htm#UsingFirewallWebShieldProtection/ManagingActiveConnections.htm does not speak to Block nor Close. Sad.

....and Webroot may not satisfy all users, all the time.

*** A -- B -- C ***
A-- I use Block and Close. I know why/how.
B-- I do not use Block and Close. I do not know why/how.
C-- Other. Please explain.
??????????????????

adding re browsers
Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Edge active connections are broken with moving Allow to Block.

Firefox and Internet Explorer call are not allowed to connect with Block.
Chrome and Edge call are allowed to connect with Block.
