More on Monterey

Hi Community!

I have Monterey 12.0.1 on my MacPro and since I've installed Monterey I can't get on the internet reliably -- that is to say that some sites load and others won't -- it's like the computer is thinking about whether I should go to google or facebook, but I don't get there. I guess this isn't necessarily Bitdefender, but it seems likely -- and maybe it's a settings thing. Or is there some new-fangled thing in Monterey (currently referred to as Macademia Nut here) that is checking to see I don't go to inappropriate (ie google) sites?
