I have a problem with my Internet provider right now, and so I can't connect to certain websites. One of these is http://plugins.jetbrains.com/ (others are like stackoverflow.com.) So, PHPStorm tries to check for non-bundled plugins (updates I assume), but gets stuck on this because inability to connect.
I try stopping the process, but the the process never fully stops:
This is driving me crazy. Is there a way to disable this until I can get my Internet provider to fix the network issue?
