...... update to 2016 went fine so far but,....

is there any workaround to enable Avast AOS within FF 42 64bit (@Win10 64)?

Thx for suggestions :)

There is. Go to my.avast.com (you have to log in if you aren't already) and webpage will offer you to install the plugin. Allow installation and confirm installation. It works, confirmed :)


Great find!
THX!

The new version with password security will be interest me only if it will do more than the LastPass extension in Google Chrome.

It can delete the passwords stored in your browser. I'm using both :)

I'm very disappointed with Avast Passwords. It loaded all of my passwords from Chrome. In the Avast passwords menu I try to manage my passwords, and the list keeps refreshing over and over. Then when I simply try to scroll down, it automatically scrolls back up to the top so that I can't access any passwords further down the list!

I want Avast to forget my passwords, but I can't even do that. I have to individually select the password and then remove. Is there a select all function? Ctrl + A won't work. The list keeps moving back to the top before I can do anything.

It loads the passwords from your browser if you selected the import button.
I don't know what additional features are available in the paid version. I only use the free version.

Yes, Firefox beta would do this. There is currently no workaround except switching to a release version of Firefox.

Still on 10.3.2225 here.
Under program update it still reads that version 10.3.2233 is available?
Why doesn't the latest version of avast show up.Might be a stupid question but i wonder  if i update from 10.3.2225 will i get the 10.3.2233 or the 11.1.2241 version of avast.

When you do a program update from the avastUI, my understanding of the process you will get the latest version. The most recent avast 2015 version was 10.4.2233, it should have been reporting that version number (not 10.2.2233, no such build number) ?

That said I don't know if there would be any OS restrictions here if you had a very old OS (earlier than XP).

I am using win7.
I suppose i'll eventually have to update the program and see what happens.

Installed the 2016 version from download directly from Avast. The new password segment of the program only works on Google Chrome browser and not Firefox vers 42.0.
I read somewhere that Firefox will no longer accep extions, ie: tthe password segment bar is not loaded onto firefox browser. Has anyone else had this problem with firefox?

FYI Bug Report.. After doing a clean install of this latest version, I've had to go to the Trouble Shooting section and change Avast start-up to "Load Avast after other services have loaded". 

Reason: When Avast loads on the front end, it prevented me from accessing the Windows 10 Start menu and the Edge browser.  Can click on them, but nothing happens.  This doesn't occur on every startup, but on every 1 out of every 4 computer startups/restarts.  Have to do the Alt/Control/Delete thing to restart the PC when Avast has killed the Start Menu.
