Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

New installation of LinuxMint 19.1 Cinnamon. Have not done anything remarkable as far as I am aware. Go to Firewall through the menu. Status is "disabled". Click on it to enable. Shows enabled for a few seconds and then reverts to disabled.

As of 6/22/2019 10:05 PM it is still enabled. I have not done anything that should affect the behavior, but it seems to be acting properly.

It appears that what ever was wrong has fixed itself. Not anything I am aware of doing myself.
