I guess now setting it to ask will give lots of FP's i.e number of popups.
Well, not that many indeed. Few.

Set it to auto means the default allow, right??
Well, there is not auto right now. There are ask, block and allow.
But I think I understand what you're asking. Default right now is passive, allow all.

I'd say that even now, if you set it to Ask, the number of popups will actually be fairly low. Typically very low actually. That's because there's already some intelligence behind this that is making certain decisions on its own.

Try it for yourself, and you'll see.

Thanks

I have had a few, mostly from trying to connect to the internet (e.g. hitting F1 for help) I have added some to the trusted list.


Is this from the release version, or from a previous beta?


Thanks

The beta versions (I installed over) but I did delete a couple, and they still gave an alert. Should I try deleting them all and see which ones give the alert again

I think just for the sake of understanding the situation, it would be useful.

Geany, Pidgin, and Thunderbird so far have generated an alert. Happens when I hit F1 for help.

All were alerts on

Mhh.
I have reinstall avast! because i missed the "sandbox icon (@)" in the browser while the browser is virtualized.
After the reinstall the Behaviour Shield scanned nothing more (see screenshot).
Before i reinstalled it, the Behavior Shield scanned about 17 files.

I think it´s not working correct on my main PC.
