NAV Connection Blocking "Action" - Grayed Out

The "action" column in NAV (which tells me whether NAV allowed or blocked a connection) is not Red or Green.  It's gray, and the information in all the other columes is present (ie.,  it is in-bound traffic, safari.app, remote port 80, and a mysterious yahoo.com  IP address.) and saved by NAV.  How do I interpret the action of NAV?  Was the connection allowed or not?

P.S - why does Symantec you keep trying to store a 1MB test html cookie file on my computer?  Please stop it!!!!

This is just a bug in the UI. Sorry about that.

What is the test.html file you keep seeing?

I guess the safest thing to do is assume that NAV did not block the connection (?).

Here's the request I get each time I click on any item/page on your website.  ? purpose

Sorry, Ryan, thought my posting would appear.  Here's the text of the warning message from Safari:

From Safari:  Allow this website to use space on your disk?

"The website 'http://community.norton.com' is requesting 1 MB of disk space to store "html5 test db" as a database on your disk."

I'll forward this to the forums moderator, but I definitely don't see that message. 

In the mean time try going to Safari -> Preferences -> Privacy and click "Details" under "Cookies and other website data". Search for norton.com, and when you find it, click on the Remove button.

We'll see if that fixes things, otherwise the forum guys will have to chime in.

It's a Safari preference, labeled "Database storage" which lets HTML5 store data on the client side.

The HTML5 localStorage default for Safari is 5 Mb without prompting, but if you set it to "None," you'll see that message (from various different sites) that attempt to create a client-side (key-value) database.
