avast! extension for Firefox, settings button not working
« on: March 03, 2014, 06:49:11 AM »
When I click on the green avast! logo in Firefox and it pulls up the sidebar, the settings button on the bottom is not working, anyone have a clue why?

This should work: chrome://wrc/content/options.html

If you can't reach the settings on the bottom, reach them from the top:

You are totally missing the picture. I am not talking about Firefox settings, I am talk about avast! settings...

This should work: chrome://wrc/content/options.html

Thanks! This worked, the question now is, why does the plugin not work...

In fact the sidebar says this website is unknown...
Figured that part out, it is because Amazon Instant Video is running as I typed this.

My mistake and I can confirm that the settings button does nothing.

What is that? It's not a webpage.

It is the Option site for avast! Online Security. Just copy/paste the address then go. It should open the AOS option site. see image ( it is in Spanish because I am in SA )

IE - The webpage cannot be displayed.

Chrome - This webpage is not available

Firefox - blank page.

I do not think it works with IE. Besides, AOS option button works even with IE 8.
I do not use Chrome so no comments.
It definitely works with FF 27.0.1 since the screenshots are mine. Here with different settings. see image

I just paste the address given by Asyn in my browser bar and enter it. That's it. No idea why it is not working for you though :-\

Asyn's link works if used in Firefox 27:

It does not work if pasted into another browser. :)

It worked this time but stayed open only long enough to see the setting's.  I have it set to block everything.

Bottom line. AOS is more trouble than it's worth.
