I have about a ten apps that have internet connections for their operation. Each time a particular app starts up after a boot/reboot of OS, I get the message "Do you want the application XYZ to accept incoming network connections. Settings can be changed in the Firewall pane of Security Preferences."

Every time I click ALLOW and the next time it happens again. The apps are listed in the Firewall as allowing incoming connections. The set access for specific services and applications button is active.

Of the ten apps only Fetch, BBEdit, CDpedia, and DVDpedia seem to behave this way?

How can I get those apps to stop asking if ok to allow? This seems to have begun a few OS versions ago.
