Hi @Alex_Samad


Thanks for your feedback!

Without more background, I can only recommend checking if you've got the latest version (8.0.15 and 8.1.6, both currently recommended versions) installed on your system

Where can I report bugs? On Panorama, if I select category as allow, it is none when I next time open the urlfilter. Which is either dangerous or just annoying. Or both.
