The tech queue is getting questions about this too, and I'm not sure
what the answer is. It isn't related to your filtering program. This
works for some:
Log into Terminal and do sudo chmod 755 on the app bundle.
You could also try throwing away the OS-generated plist file in Preferences.
Also try changing the owner of the app in Get Info.
None of these has proved to be successful for everyone though, and in
your situation it isn't really reasonable to ask your customers to use
The above is from a web page that has other suggestions too:
That page is a little old but the Terminal instructions worked in one
case I had. I need to find out more about this.
