in Outpost Firewall I enable SVCHOST.exe (for DNS requests), jawaw.exe (for, firefox.exe (enable only TCP to
in this configuration all works fine.
BUT, if I disable access to Internet for everything(through Outpost Firewall), for example, in 5 minutes, and then enable own again, I can't access to Internet. Any Internet request I can see in HandyCache monitor window, but in this case nothing happened. I close all Firefox windows, but shell command tasklist show me proccess Firefox.exe. I can't access to Internet through Firefox until I kill proccess Firefox.exe.

Firefox wait response a long time and then seems like no Internet connection. In HandyCache monitor window no new records. If I configures "Internet explorer" in same option, it's work.

Expected Results:  
URL must open. In HandyCache monitor window must appear this URL.

Severity: normal → major
Version: unspecified → 2.0 Branch
do you still see problem if you use current beta, latest version of all plugins (for example flash v10 - check using about:plugins), java (1.6_0_13), etc
started in safe mode
- latest beta
