Disable Firewall Disable all packet filtering in PFsence

I want to use PfSense as router. Hence I install FRR package and disable firewall function in PfSence to enhance the pfsense routing performance. Can I still have some basic PfSence protection after checked "Disable all packet filtering in PFsence"? for example SSH, Web GUI access from specific IP address..etc
Protection in what sense?
Disabling the firewall in System > Advanced > Firewall & NAT disables pf entirely so you cannot filter traffic at all. The webgui and SSH will be open to any source IP.
