firewall questions spamming computer
« on: February 22, 2022, 03:09:13 AM »
I have been experiencing a significant increase in firewall questions for ALL of my regular programs and it is not remembering my answers.  So I am constantly finding myself answering 30-50 firewall questions for my programs every few hours.  No matter what I do to get it to remember my answers, it asks the same question over and over.  What can I do?  It started in January.

Hi, it's fixed in 22.2 (currently in beta).

Fixed issue with multiple FW dialogs shown for the same *.exe file
