XFENCE forgets/deletes existing rules

This morning I spend 3 hours maintaining and refining rules. I also imported the Dropbox rules from the extras.

 

I often opened and closed the rules browser. After I fininshed I started getting a ton of popup from apps which I formerly gave full access to all files or to a specific folder. I also got the same popups repeatedly.

 

After confirming each dialog I opened the rules browser to search for the rules I just confirmed. To my surprise most of them weren't there anymore, for instance all the Dropbox rules are gone, all BetterTouchTool rules and many more.

 

I rebooted once again and spent another 10 minutes clicking on popups only to find that they didn't stick and are nowhere to be found in the rules browser.

 

I'm an admin user. That's all I can think of in regards of causes of defect.

 

The issue persists even after several reboots. Example: Remind Example

 

Once again, no trace of remind in my rules. I have to disable XFENCE for the time being since it has become unusable. I'm open for suggestions.

    Hello,

     

    Just interesting (because I do not able to re-check with my own steps):

    It's case XFENCE-00160 on the beta site… which is currently not available anymore

    Do you mean that beta-portal (or F-SECURE XFENCE project) is not available anymore?

     

    Because -> with my experience: beta-portal still possible to use; And F-Secure XFENCE project still marked as available opportunity under public F-Secure resources/webpages (even maybe is not valid already).

     

    Thanks!

  • I was unable to find it yesterday. My irritation was because XFence wasn't listed in F-Secure > Website Footer > Beta Programs (https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/labs_global/beta-programs). The only app for home users there is FS Protection.

     

    I had to search my emails for the correct login. Here's a link to the case number, don't know if it's public or just for my account: https://beta.f-secure.com

    Hello,

     

    I'm not sure how it with F-Secure XFENCE project, but usually reports/cases under beta-portal is visible only for you (and F-Secure staff; or maybe for this ones who allowed to see it). Such as not a public tracker.

     

    // and, yes, main beta programs webpage do not list "Xfence". Just as clarification: 'by  public F-Secure websites/resources" I did  talk about Xfence promo page (and 'available'-status under beta-portal):

    https://campaigns.f-secure.com/xfence/

     

    Thanks!
