    I noticed an issue since the latest beta versions (and now with the public 8.0.1.233) regarding the "web threat shield". Every time I visit a website that is blocked by WSA I get a blank image that covers the browser window completely and the only way to get rid of it is to press ALT-F4. I would expect too see a prompt like before that warns me about the blocked website

    I have the same problem here on Windows 7 HP and WSA 8.0.1.233 and is very annoying.

    Just to let you know a work around for now is don't have your Browser Maximized then you well see the warning box until it's fixed!
