Description (partial)

This bug is to further document the procedure when modifying regular expression class maps for the inspect http only.  You will need to remove and add the service policy after making the changes so they take effect. 

When running http inspection and url filtering, when making a change to the associated regex class map of type inspect-http, any subsequent changes like removing a match statement will cause the asa to block all urls until you do the workaround listed below. 

regex domainlist1 "\site\.com"

class-map type inspect http match-any BlockDomainClass  
match request header host regex domainlist1

if we remove the match above and change it to domainlist2 for example, then all urls will be blocked until you remove and add the service policy back in.
