    "I have white listed http://www.apple.com/itunes and www.pandora.com"

    You cannot whitelist http://www.apple.com/itunes, because this is not a domain, but a URL. The domain would be apple.com, and the subdomain www.apple.com.
    Were these domains actually blocked according to your stats?  If not, youi don't need to whitelist them.  This cannot help.

    Visit your stats at https://dashboard.opendns.com/stats/all/blockeddomains to find out the related domains being blocked by your settings.  In case this is not caused by your OpenDNS settings, you'll not find anything, and you had to look for other causes of your problem.

    If you want to see the domains queried in real-time when visiting those (or any other) sites, you can use a program like http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/dns_query_sniffer.html

    Thanks, rotblitz; I appreciate your help. The stats don't show that any domains are being blocked. This would seem to indicate that the problems are unrelated; But I've never had trouble with iTunes or Pandora before; and they appeared as soon as I started using OpenDNS.

    I tried setting Web Content Filtering to None this morning, waited the requisite three minutes (actually more like 30), and tried again. No dice.

    Nirsoft is written only for Windows machines and I'm on a Mac (iMac late 2009, 12GB RAM, running OSX 10.9.1). Any other ideas are welcome.

    Yes, then your problems are most likely unrelated.

    "I tried setting Web Content Filtering to None this morning"

    Better go to Advanced settings to disable Typo Correction.

    "waited the requisite three minutes (actually more like 30)"

    Waiting doesn't help, you need to flush your local resolver cache and your browser cache.
