Is anyone else seeing problems with them? Every single app that requires network connection is now popping up the dialog for permission to connect. Every single one of them is ALREADY in the firewall exceptions.

Pretty sure it started happening after one of the recent OS updates.

What gives?

OSX 10.6.8 (SL)

Anyone else seeing a problem with this?

Patience, persistence, tenacity. The triple threat. If you have all three, you are unstoppable!

If you're on a private wireless network then the router has a firewall, so you can turn off the OS X one, that might solve the problem.
