Add Security Exception for gmail Popups
« on: October 20, 2014, 01:33:01 AM »
Hi,

So I'm going insane here.

I had to uninstall & install Avast b/c no on here helped me to figure out why whenever there was a threat I couldn't open the button to see what it was, deal with it, etc.

So after reinstalling, now I have this issue where Avast (I assume it's Avast triggering this as Thunderbird never triggered this before) keep popping up this

Add Security Exception
Unknown Identity

popup box & it's for all my gmail accounts.

Even if I click on "confirm exception" it doesn't go away or that button is greyed out.

Even if I click on "cancel" they just won't stop.

I even shut down TB & restarted it & same thing <sigh>

Can someone tell me how to stop this.

Thanks

And you guys have serious issues with your forum here. 3 times I tried to post & every time it just kept scrolling & then eventually led me to a white page. This is why there are 2 posts from me. Had I not checked, I would have thought non of them went thru.

Not a good sign for Avast IMO.

Thank you VERY much.

I'm just confused why I never had to do this with the previous Avast.

Also I didn't get an e-mail telling me you responded & I don't see any way to be notified of posts to my threads. Is it hidden in some obscure place?

Thanks again

There's a "Notify" button on top and bottom of each thread.

k, thanks.

Very very strange & not user friendly IMO. I've been on tons of forums for the last 20 years & never seen forum software that doesn't allow you to check a box or check off in your user settings that you want to be notified for every thread when you respond.

Plus this software doesn't take you back to the thread after you post (again not user friendly), plus the captcha is very difficult to read & annoying. I already mentioned the bugs I noticed before when I first tried to post & it wasn't easy.

Anyway, I guess Avast doesn't care.

Take care

Some options and functions are allowed only after 20 posts on the forum. Captcha is only needed for your first 3 posts.

I don't know, this is my 5th post & it's still making me do it although this one was clearer.

Thanks
