    Thanks for release!


    And sorry for ask...


    Just interesting - does it impossible to recover list of allow/deny lists (I mean URLs, which was under the lists before update)?

    Is there something to replace Safe Search?  I can imagine some people will perhaps be unhappy with its removal.

    Regarding allow and block lists: I'm afraid they can't safely automatically be recovered if machine was already updated to latest TP. Did you have a significant amount of configurations there?

    With my main system (with FS Protection) there was not really "significant amount". Basically I also expected that there can be such situation (when Family Rules introduced and happened "missing support" for allow/deny lists) - so, I did 'backup' manually for current lists... but eventually I did not find it (maybe I randomly removed this file). URLs which was not forgotten by me about just thirty (mainly 'deny'-list) and I re-add them.


    But with my experience - some of my devices (and on current time - still?! like that also) have lists with thousand URLs (at least a little be less than two thousands URLs - generally 'deny', but also 'allowed' - when I checked it last time about count); Because there missing export/import - re-add it (as after re-installation too) not funny action. So my latest experience and most common systems with less size (maybe hundreds);


    I think that this is not common situation and using this lists designed to be with another view (such as -> most of URLs under allow-list can be re-rated by F-Secure SAS;  and deny-list can be just with small size of URLs);




    But I can to think about potential situation, when "such situation" can be not really nice with "expected usage" (and with my main systems, where installed F-Secure SAFE it can be valid); That if we have multiple accounts (with "user's account", where adding to allow-list (or deny) required "administrator's" rights/credentials) - with such system there can be quite many allowed-websites (or deny) - generally if we use content blocker/family rules; 

    And mainly if we do not remember this URLs (and added "per access requirement") - there can be more steps, than we able to want (if we do not able allow access to website on-the-fly as with administrator-account);

    You don't normally have that many fshoster processes unless there was a crash. Have you filed a bug?
