Not applicable

I'm doing some test on pa500 in our site, and trying to apply some feature like block of facebook app i see a strange behavior. First of all the policy of decrypt and bloking works correctly because the facebook is in "read only" state without possibility to do i like, or post with all the browser i've tested, but with Rockmelt browser i have facebook on shortcut, if i try to open in the web page it is blocked but if i see facebook from the "popup window" of rockmelt i can avoid this specific policy on PA.

Some of you have done or can do some test to confirm this and eventually try to ask a fix.

You cannot login to your Rockmelt browser if you have facebook application blocked. You can only browse in logged-out mode without access to facebook.

Maybe i've not explained my problem correctly. With a pc on a network and my macbook behind PA-500 with blocked chat, app,post etc... with rockmelt i can do all, with safari the app is correctly blocked. I mean on the left pannel if i open facebbok page in rockmelt is blocked but on the column who appear on the left side the app isn't blocked.

just now i've tried unblocking only facebook base, if i do i like on safari it doesn't work, on rockmelt i do i'like in the column on the left and when i update the page in safari i see that the i like was applied.

All other block chat etc.. now works, there is a policy decrypt because i use it in https.

Please open a case with support indicating that rockmelt browser is circumventing some of tha App ID functionality.

I see other ways around as well - when I block posting, apps, messaging and chat, I can still add a photo and add text to that.
