F-Secure should have its own firewall
Sorry for my reply. I am only an F-Secure user (their home solutions).
Just as sidenote - "own firewall" request is already existed with some forms, wordings and views:
But just as a small discussion:
does it about Windows platform?
and why F-Secure should have its own firewall? and is it only about firewall functionality?
With meanings allow/deny outbound and inbound connections? If so - why built-in Windows Firewall is not enough good for such task?
In addition, I think that even for advanced tasks - Windows Firewall is quite well option.
My own feelings are that own firewall is cool. But own secure OS is even more cool.
Otherwise possible to suspect that "third-party" firewall (for OS) is always tricky thing. But I feel that possible to request something like "friendly" graphical user interface for existed firewall functionality. Or improved and advanced abilities, features or functionality. But these advanced points are not necessary part of "Firewall".
Since your request if freshly created one - maybe good to provide your own feelings - why F-Secure should have its own firewall. Or what is expected set of features for you? This one which available with Windows Firewall, but "copied" by F-Secure? Or something more?
In addition, user should to configure it properly by own steps? Or should be available something like default
'good-enough' profile with ability to tweak it by own steps? And does potential firewall should ask about each activity? Or can be enough only for suspicious and unclear events?
F-Secure has not only ignored the request of MANY of its users to bring back a REAL firewall to F-Secure SAFE... it has REMOVED the above links where users have repeatedly requested this much-needed feature. All those links now go to "page not found."
This tells us all we need to know: F-Secure does not care what needed/missing features we request. I will not be re-newing, as nearly all the competitors out there INCLUDE a REAL firewall at the same or lower prices.
So sad how far F-Secure has fallen. If it would only listen to its users, it could be a great company/product again!

Perhaps, as with regards to the conclusions about deleting topics, then in relation to the real firewall or ignoring something - just some kind of misunderstanding or not fully understood the situation.
Community changed platform and some URLs (topics, URL routine/scheme from previous platform) were not changed with smooth integration. For example, redirects are not configured or are not working as expected. Or maybe was impossible (as a limitation during switch from one platform to another).
All of mentioned requests are still there and available:

Thus, perhaps this tells something else.
