Yet another issue, despite this being on the fix list.

The Security Browser Extension, isn't installing on Firefox 51.0.1 and this is only the 32bit version of firefox, running on XP Pro SP3.

EDIT: Restarted avast and firefox, still no AOS - restarted the OS and still no AOS.
Hi Dave, there's a delay of 12 hours before AOS is offered.

Why? Why not immediate? If I turn it on and not get it, i'll think it's broken. And when it popus up 12 hours later, do you think casual people know it's that same thing? Or they'll think OH MUH GOD; ADWARE!!!!

I honestly can't see the point of this, other than to frustrate users. Especially those beta testers using the beta version and testing the supposed fixes.

I wasn't offered it because I had bloody removed it because it previously didn't work, no matter what I tried. Now that the new beta was released I did a manual program update. It wasn't so much being offered, but being demanded.

It is hard to see why anyone would bother to run the beta versions if there are going to be unknown/unpublished hoops to jump through. It is just a giant waste of time, I really will have to consider if it is worth bothering beta testing if avast are going to introduce these frustrations. Thankfully I haven't got it on this win10 system.

It's still a bit slow (compared to 2280).

For me on this win10 with 2280, the UI loads very fast (higher spec) than my XP when it had 2280 the UI opened quickly (under 3 sec), but took several more seconds before you could click anything. However, on my XP system the 2286 & 2287 UI loaded much quicker than 2280 and is ready for use.

A big dislike again (updating from 2286 - 2287 via built-in updater)

I believe it's because it was previous beta? I hope this does not happen with stable release... or only this once (not next month).

My Program Settings are set to Ask/Notify of updates, but I didn't wait and did a manual program update. I didn't get the screen that you attached, but I did get one with a big fat Activate button.

Anyone not paying attention would find that they had just clicked to have a 60 trial of Premier (or AIS) and the very small text (not even a button) along the lines of Not this time or no thanks.
