I used to get a ZA popup ("xx is trying to access the internet) whenever I open firefox or check for update on AVG, on this popup I can either select "accept" or not.
Since yesterday I've noticed that if I already have a firefox browser open, and I try to open a new Firefox browser (not a new tab), then I do not see this popup. A similar behavior is observed when I check for update on my AVG, except that no popup is raised even the first time I open AVG after a system reboot. I checked the ZA logs and don't see any of these applications requesting access to the internet either. In both scenarios I see the ZA system tray icon showing some traffic.
I am using Windows Vista SP2, ZA 8.0.298. neither firefox nor AVG has been updated during the past couple of days.
Any idea why? Thanks a lot!
