so, the only way to lose such data, is if you are not carful upon entering it somewhere online. Make sure to delete cookies on a regular basis and disable auto filling of your browser.
So, mostly the firewall is not even remoteley connected with the loss of your data (except remote control getting installed by malware, which is rather unlikeley). What exacltly your firewall keeps away and how it functions, that is something someone else will have to tell, since i am not too familar with it.
