Title: Strangr behavior of last avast (11.1.2245) on file sessionstore.js in firefox
Post by: petitlou60.interne04@laposte.net on December 08, 2015, 04:03:23 PM
Hello every body


I am using avast free (11.1.2245) on windows 10 th2   and also firefox 42

When firefox is open sessionstore.js does not exist in firefox profile, it is only created when closing firefox
then read when firefox is restarted.

If i configure nothing   this file is randomly deleted or not written, so my preceding sessions are lost

if in avast setting i exclude this file for scanning for both read and write
this file is not deleted or no writed and all is ok

My feeling is that avast consider sessionstore.js as bad file, but i see nothing in quanrantine folder

Best regards

By default, there should be a sessionstore.js exclusion in File System Shield | Exclusions.  Go to Settings | Active Protection | File System Shield | Customize and then click on Exclusions.  You may have to scroll down from there.

The exclusion is in the File System Shield settings as mentioned and is a default setting, but excluded only for Write options. This would mean, New creations of that file or modifications to that file are excluded from the file shield scan.

So avast isn't going to be impacting on that file.

I have the same tabs displayed as those that were open when I closed firefox, so it is restoring my session correctly.

EDIT: I also use the TabMix add-on for managing tabs, so that could also have an impact, like you I don't have sessionstore.js in the firefox/profile location.

Sessionstore.js is not in the Firefox profile when the profile is running.  It is created when Firefox is closed, and doesn't exist when Firefox is restarted.
