I have been using ESS without problems for well over a year, I run in interactive mode and suddenly out of the blue for applications that were working find before, ESS has now decided to continuously prompt me to give them access. Two example of unrelated applications, are Punch home and landscape design and uTorrent (both of which were fine a few days ago). If I switch to automatic mode they work fine and are not even blocked. If I look at the firewall rules they are just duplicated in the list. I have un-installed and re-installed but still the same problem.
