That is correct behaviour, since there always needs to be a NEW
connection before any other may be RELATED or ESTABLISHED. Hence, if you
want to block outgoing traffic, you should allow at least ports 80 and
443 as you did before.

I assume you want your browser to be ablte to call anywhere, right?
Hence also home. Who tells you, that your browser is not a malicious
program? Or run by such a program?
