Description (partial)

If an access control rule has a file policy, then Firepower automatically enables inline normalization with the Normalize TCP Payload option.  In order to minimize TCP evasion efforts inline normalization with Normalize TCP Payload option enables Pre-ACK Inspection mode which normalizes traffic immediately after packet decode and before any other Snort function is processed.
More about inline normalization, Post-ACK, and Pre-ACK inspection modes are available in the troubleshooting technote called "Enable the Inline Normalization Preprocessor and Understand Pre-ACK and Post-ACK Inspection"
