Avast and Disqus
« on: November 20, 2013, 02:21:43 AM »
I got a notice from the icon to upgrade my Avast, so I did. Then I was unable to comment using Disqus.
I used system restore and was able to comment again. Then I thought Disqus may have been temporarily having problems, so I upgraded Avast again only to wind up with the same problem, so then I had to system restore all over again.
Any suggestions?

Disable Avast Online Security add-on and see if that helps.

Where do I find the Online Security add-on? I can't find it by clicking on the Avast icon.
Thanks for responding.

You'll find AOS add-on in Add-ons manager of your browser.
Firefox: Tools/Add-ons
IE: Tools/Manage Add-ons
I don't have Chrome installed,but You'll find AOS under Extensions.

Thanks abruptum, that worked.
But doesn't disabling Avast online security defeat the whole purpose of having Avast to begin with?
With the update you can still use Disqus on google, but I prefer firefox.

Avast is still protecting you (Web Shield etc.). I don't have AOS add-on installed because it has some bugs.
I am using WOT and Adblock Plus with EasyList,EasyPrivacy and Malware Domains list subscriptions.

Hope this helps.

I am running current version of Avast 2014.9.0.2008.  I have the Avast Online Security (AOS)  plug in install (9.0.2006.53) running on Firefox 25.0.1.  OS is an update to date on maintenance Win 7.  Disqus comment are not displaying on the CNN web site.   I've seen post to disable the AOS plug in.  Other than disabling the plug in, are there any other Avast settings that will allow Disqus comments to be displayed?
