    Hello, all. I use Firefox as my main browser, but I also keep Opera & Internet Explorer on my system and use/evaluate them occasionally. I recently started using Peer Guardian for P2P lists only; option "block http" on. Every time I start Firefox, the Peer Guardian icon flashes telling me it's blocking numerous hits from the BBC. I have cleared all known cookies that reference BBC, un-installed all Firefox extensions, and start with a blank page. Interestingly, this does not happen with Opera or IE. Not that I'm paranoid about the BBC (yet?); I'm just curious and security-minded when it comes to my PC. Any ideas? Thanxs in advance.
