How do I unblock a site which Malwarebytes Anti-Malware blocks?

When Malwarebytes blocks an IP address as malicious, there are still instances where websites must be accessed, either as false\positives or for other reasons. As there can be any number of sites on any given IP address and not all of the sites may be malicious, we've created an option to add an IP address to ignore.
There is currently no option to add an individual website to the Ignore list.
To access a site that is currently blocked that you wish to view, you may add it to the IP Ignore list as described below:
Navigate to the page and await the alert. Once the alert appears, right-click the Malwarebytes system tray icon(near clock) and select an IP or all IPs listed and they will now be added to the ignore option and listed in the 'Ignore' tab. You may need to refresh the page to access the site.
To remove IP addresses from ignore, open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and once open, there will be a series of tabs, labeled in order:
Scanner | Protection | Update | Quarantine | Logs | Ignore list | Settings | More Tools | About
Click the 'Ignore list' tab. Then highlight an IP listed and then click the 'Delete' button. The website which triggered the alert should now be viewable. You may need to refresh the page or restart the browser.
