Firefox 43 has been released. Working fine here with AOS:
+1 For me, too.

                Are we talking about the Avast program or the new add-on. I have Avast Premier and it seems to work fine, but I can't get Firefox
                to accept the add-on. If they don't want to accept it for security reasons I don't want to force it. I'm quite happy with Firefox's
                browser. It seems like all the companies involved with browsers want to take control of the search engines and other browser functions. 
               
                Is it the Avast program we're talking about or the add-on?

It's the AOS add-on that is being discussed, the add-on that displays whether websites are safe or not among other things.

Btw, it's interesting that the OP states that IE is the only browser where the Avast add-on works for him because in my case it will invariable crash my IE11 if I enable the add-on.  I still have the AOS add-on installed in my FF browser, but then I've stopped version updates for FF as of version 40.0.3 because of post changes and don't really use FF anymore and instead have as of October switched to Pale Moon as my default browser and have never been happier as a result.  I really appreciate the greater flexibility in as much as I prefer a more configurable browser which I've found the stability to be very robust and with far better support than I could ever get with the FF browser.

AOS does work without a problem in Firefox, but only in the 32bit version.
The 64bit version is not supported.

I am using Firefox 44.0.1, I believe it is the 64 bit version.
If Avast Online Security 10.3.3.13 is enabled it causes causes http://ceploitips.com/shopkick-barcodes-scans
to display the comments at bottom of page incorrectly.
Do you know why?
What is the fix?

You are using an old version of avast - only the latest version of avast (11.1.2253) has a 64bit version of AOS add-on. Latest version of AOS is 10.3.3.39, not as you report 10.3.3.13.

If your firefox is a 64bit then the AOS with your old version of avast and old version of AOS shouldn't work at all (shouldn't install).

So I'm somewhat confused if your firefox is 64bit or 32bit.
