Hi there, I actually have not noticed this in previous versions, but it struck me after updating to this new version without re-importing the old settings. PF asks for access permission when I open a program, ok. Now I take the programm Malwarebytes as an example: MBytes was recognized correctly when first opened. Now I went online for a signature update. MBytes was happily downloading when finally a message popped up that an application attempts to access the internet. Trying this with other programs, they hooked up to the internet before that allow/deny-warning came. Ok, I re-imported my old settings, but PF leaves a bad feeling.
