Title: google chrome and webrep plugin
Post by: BJ_GeOrgE on February 28, 2012, 04:35:55 PM
hi all,im now a google chrome user because firefox became slower than before for some reason..anyway i opened avast and saw that webrep for google chrome is installed but on google chrome i cant see the webrep icon...i tried reinstalling webrep via avast gui and still nothing...also i cant find the webrep plugin in google chrome addons..so either i cant see where google chrome shows the webrep icon or something is wrong...

avast version:6.0.1367
OS:Windows 7 64-bit
no other internet browsers except IE9 and no other antivirus software except malwarebytes(free version)

thanks in advance for your time and assistance,
george

You leave out the most crucial piece of information what version of chrome are you using ?

If it isn't the latest stable release, version 17, then it isn't supported. The bleeding edge, beta, developer and nightly builds aren't supported, that is the same for firefox only the regular release version is supported.

I'm also having issues with webrep coming and going on google searches. with chrome the icon up at the top stays there all the time but the search results seem to come and go at will...avast 6 last version free, win 7 64bit, chrome 17....seeing a lot of other posts having issues as well...
firefox isn't having the same problem.....
