Thanks for your question---- If I set the firewall to "allow all incoming connections" I get no prompts, but I don't see this as a very good solution. It's the same as turning the firewall off.
Instead, my question is: why doesn't the firewall remember that I've already set this particular program to allow all incoming connections?
Another interesting development: I am being prompted in the same fashion to allow incoming connections for Parallels Desktop now, and it too is already in the "allow all" list. Note that Parallels and Parallels components are the only apps that have this problem. There are plenty of other apps in the list for which I am never prompted once I've added them to the list.
Strange, and very annoying.......
