Installing VS Code extensions with firewall enabled

My firewall, the default firewalld, prevents my Visual Studio Code from installing new extensions. The VS Code installation in question are the official Microsoft binaries, the package being visual-studio-code-bin from AUR. How can I allow only VS Code to install, without allowing other apps.

Are you sure it is the firewall? Firewalld is only blocking inbound connections.

I disabled firewalld using systemctl

$ sudo systemctl stop firewalld

and my extensions did download. But I will try again with my firewall switched on and let you know.

I just checked and it worked, not sure why it did not work last time, but thanks for the help. But, the firewall was probably not the cause.
