If "Anti-Phishing protection" is enabled, and the user disables protection temporarily and then re-enables it, all modules are re-enabled correctly except "Anti-Phishing protection" remains disabled and has to be re-enabled manually every time.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Enable Anti-Phishing protection if it's not already.
2. Temporarily disable protection from the program menu.
3. Set any time interval.
4. Re-enable protection or wait until the time is up.
5. Open ESS > Setup


Notice that the "Anti-Phishing protection" indicator is still red indicating that it's still disabled, see the screenshot below:

I'm glad to hear that it's a known issue, wondering if a fix is expected soon? And would it be pushed as a module or a version update?

The same happens for Parental Control

It seems the Web access protection serves as intermediary

                  between the [ Firewall Component ] and [ Parental | AntiPhishing ]


But I think that Disabling Web Malware Scanning should not stop Traffic routing to those other components
