    Firefox accesses 127.0.0.1 tcp at startup.
    127.0.0.1 is listed by ESS as a local address

    Prior to the upgrade I had created a rule allowing Firefox to access local addresses tcp, any port.

    After loading the beta, when loading Firefox ESS prompts for a rule to handle 127.0.0.1 to tcp

    If I create a rule allowing it using
    no or a custom profile, local addresses, tcp or tcp-udp, any port
    it prompts me again for the same thing next time i.e. rule has no effect.

    If I create a rule for 12.0.0.1 instead it works.

    Same thing happens for Thunderbird

    Is this a bug or how it is suppose to work?

    btw
    Running vista home premium 32 bit fully updated. ESS 32 bit home 4.2.22.0
