    Sorry for my reply. I am only an F-Secure user.

    Maybe, also known for beta releases (Every time fscsafeadmind starts, it will disable the firewall — F-Secure Community)

    I think, if beta release will receive a fix - then stable build too. However, you could try to reach their official Support Channel to point out your situation.
