LS allowing all connections

LS allows all connections and has stopped prompting me to allow or deny. Running LS 2.0.3 with Leopard 10.5.3.

I used the dmg's uninstall feature, restarted, reinstalled and restarted again.

I'm using a Standard account. When I switch to the Admin account the normal allow/deny prompts appear.

In my account, when I manually add a deny rule, for example Firefox, it does completely block it. However, when I delete all Firefox rules LS allows all connections without prompting me to allow or deny. The Network Monitor is turned on.

Why is LS allowing all connections? How can I get it to return to normal?

It sounds like you have accidentally added a rule that allows all applications any connection:

If there is no such rule, we have to dig deeper, or eventually switch to a new standard user account and see whether the problem persists.
