nothing major but I found it very odd?

I was browsing the net and I noticed the I never had that little avast site rater icon, so I had a look and my "Avast Online Security" extension was no longer on my computer? (at all, I had a good look)

I don't know why it was gone, but there was no evidence of it ever being on my computer (I have had it for over 2 years now on this computer) I have reinstalled it and am having no problems now but I don't want other people to have many problems so I thought I should just put it out there.

Without knowing more details, I would say a update of your browser removed AOS from it.

What browser and version are you using ?

What avast version are you using (11.2.2262, is the latest regular release version).

The above questions tend to relate to Firefox (Mozilla) requiring signed add-ons after a certain version and said signed version of the AOS add-on only came after a certain avast build.
WinXP ProSP3/ Core2Duo E8300/ 4GB Ram/ avast! free 18.5.2342/ Firefox ESR, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ DropMyRights/ WinPatrol+/ Drive Image 7.1/ SnagIt 10.0/ avast! mobile security
Windows 10 Home 1909 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 19.8.2393 (build 19.8.4793.541) UI-1.0.415/ WinPatrol+/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ WinPatrol+/
