After update logged-in state of Avast Account was reseted (i.e. log-outed). Is it only me?

Hi,

I had a problem with previous version as described here - https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=229461.msg1522692#msg1522692

Today I try this new beta version, hoping to find problem fixed, however, I experienced a new problem - BSOD when cyber capture runs.

Avast Premium Security Beta ver 19.9.2394
Windows 10 Pro v1903 build 18362.418

Removed Avast again completely as cannot use like this.

Ok, so far all is good with CyberCapture disabled, also seems to have solved the problem reported with the previous release.
Thanks again.

Ok, so I have an observation with latest beta release, similar to my post re v19.8.2393 (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=229461.msg1522692#msg1522692).

This again relates to the SierraChart software, which has two chart rendering modes Windows GDI & OpenGL. If I enable OpenGL rendering, then 'Avast Behaviour Shield' is often seen to fully occupy 1 core/thread, which in turn leads to a much less responsive user interface.

Strangely, this still happens (although to a lesser extent) when Behaviour Shield is disabled. In addition to this, I have set exceptions for SierraChart software and associated data files, but this does not stop the interference of Behaviour Shield.

I do not see any evidence of the behaviour when using Windows GDI rendering, nor did I experience this behaviour when Avast was fully uninstalled.

Hello Im very new in this beta-program. I ve got the link from M.  of The Avast Support Team.

I 've had strange BSOD's with the "regular" version of AVAST (internet security), now they are gone. So far so good.
What i've noticed is, in this beta program, the SPAM filter marks every incoming e-mail with asterics  '** SPA.. **'  No matter what config i choose.
I wonder if anyone else have seen this behavoir ?

greetz,
GJ

Sadly, I've given up on Avast beta and gone back to Safari. Avast beta is fast and efficient and I like the layout but it will not play videos on news channels or the BBC, I have tried to find solutions and have gone to Chrome to reset stuff and to Flash Player likewise but half the time I do not understand what I am supposed to do. Life's too short - back to Safari. Pity!

Hello Karel, I wanted to ask if igor's fix is included in 19.9.x?
This is about the Browser Hook changing Firefox TLS/SSL settings even when WebShield is uninstalled.
