    Hi all. Have exactly the same problem and have written to Apple to complain. Meanwhile, I seem to have circumvented the problem by adding Google (one letter at a time, clicking ok on the whiny window after every letter)  to my daughter's favourites bar. She can now access google from there and then, via Google, any other website she wants. This is not ideal but it meas that she still has time limits, until Apple fixes this very annoying bug.

    In a diplomatic sense, what, as mere customers, yearning for guidance, are we supposed to make of all the "<Edited By Host>" entries?  Edited by whose Host? Does Host == Apple? I didn't think Apple deigned to monitor such lowly likes as us!

    You never got these problems with my old Classic...


    But seriously, me too: Unfortunately, I only upgraded to Mountain Lion two days ago so went straight to 8.0.2 so no chance of stepping back to 8.0.1.


    I notice that there's nothing about this on the feedback on the app store which would certainly have prevented me from wasting my time. I wonder if any mention of this issue has been moderated?  

  • angus_stirling Level 1 Level 1

    It seems it has.

  • ddrwong Level 1 Level 1

    Success! Thanks to advices from this forum, I was finally able to revert back to 10.8 and now parental control is something that is usable!


    Now I am considering going back to 10.7 or even 10.6 which I am still running on my own Mac. This is progress.

    Same issue.

    Apple - Please fix!

  • lumberbrad Level 1 Level 1

    I too am having this problem. I am half tempted to delete my kids account all together and recreate it and not touch the parental controls and just hope and pray that they wont get into too much trouble. I've tried everything I can think of. Even turning parental controls back off does not fix the issue.

    I have a lab of 25 iMacs, and I really need a solution from Apple for this problem. This is now what they consider customer service. I have been with Apple from the beginning, but I am more and more disappointed with their actions, inactions, and quality control. I'm going to have to do hours of work because proper testing did not take place before this release. Why is there not a solution yet?

    I've been having similar problems this week. Have a MacBook Pro, running 10.8.2. When I try to type an address in the bar in Safari, I get pop-ups along this line:


    "Parental Cotrol"

    "Safari attempted to access a secure website."


    Also, when I use Mail, I get pop-ups occasionally too.



  • yyzLT Level 1 Level 1

    I experienced the same issue.  The issue was only for the users with "managed" accounts (my kids)...My wife and I with "admin" accounts were fine.  I have temporarily changed my kids accounts to "standard" and they are okay now.  Apple needs to fix this!

  • vee4kids Level 1 Level 1

    I see im not the only one that is having this problem.

    Even my Adult children have restricted access.


    Hope this is fixed soon.


    Thanks Apple 

  • simarilius Level 1 Level 1

    Had the same Issue with the guest account and Parental Controls.


    This seems to fix it:

    Und Parental Controls - Settings / Web

    I selected "Try to Limit access to adult websites automatically"

    Under Customize I removed all sites at "Allway allow these websites" ( which was the site which was always denied)

    Now it seems to work

  • angus_stirling Level 1 Level 1

    Nope - sadly that doesn't work either.

  • angus_stirling Level 1 Level 1

    If only the dudes at Apple could hear the pitiful wailing of thousands of children who have been denied access to that interweb thingy, I like to think that a little tear would form in their eyes and then maybe their hearts would and they would fix this bug.
