    Hi, my first post here. :)

    I installed ML direct from SL with no problems whatsoever, the whole install took under 50 mins - i'm super happy with it.

    The 1 thing that has irritated me so far is that if I open one of my non-apple apps like transmission or VLC, even tho I have used them for the first time since my update already, I get that warning box about opening it for the first time again.

    It's really bugging me after the 3rd time!

    It's only after I've powered down and up again pretty sure.

    Why wont she remember I've already used these apps??

    Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Allow applications downloaded from: Anywhere.

    You need to update your third party apps.

    I was hoping that once I have approved an app thats already installed on my mac that I could keep the security settings how they are... I have all the current latest versions of the apps... of course.

    Still happening

    anyone else got this problem since updating to ML?
    Even after downgrading the security settings to allow any apps, it still asks me if i'm sure I want to open the app like it's the first time, if it's the first time I've opened it that day. (since turning on the macbook)
    I have the latest version of the apps, and the security at Allow All Developers.
