An update sometime in the last ~3weeks I believe, has caused ESS to block usage meters from accessing ISP internet usage information. I use both a side bar gadget and a Firefox plugin, neither of which display the information. On 2 separate computer without ESS the information is displayed correctly, on 2 other computers owned by family/friends with same ESS version, one with the same ISP one with a different ISP, the same problem exists, no usage information. All computers are using version 672 All computers are on "interactive mode" All computers were working fine and have not had changes made other than ESS updates. 2 computers are on vista64, 2 computers on xp pro (1 on sp2 & 1 on sp3) ESS is the only common denominator; I have not tried removing ESS because I do not want uninstall ESS as all rules are setup and everyone knows what is allow and not allowed, should they get a pop up.
