I first noticed this issue in Version 5.0.4 which I just recently started using. I was hoping the issue would go away with Version 6. But it still occurs.
Here is what happens: there is a reference in my code to some external website. For example, the Better Business Bureau. Many times when I edit certain pages of the site, Little Snitch reports that PHPStorm wants to connect to that external website. It seems to happen for several different sites, but not every link in the code base.
Is there a setting to disable this? Why is such a "feature" even provided?
