Avast 17.1.2286 couldn't install AOS on 64bit versions of firefox.

This was meant to change in the latest avast beta 2287, but I found I couldn't even install it on 32bit versions of firefox.

Still the same bloody state, avast says its installed, firefox has no entry for it.

Several restarts, uninstalls and reinstalls AOS isn't there. I give up, life's to short for this nonsense.

Maybe one of your many extensions is blocking it ???

Extensions don't block the installation of other extensions (they are generally blocking web content), plus none of my extensions have ever done this and none of those have changed and they haven't stopped it before.

Not to mention you should still get the firefox intervention about installing a 3rd party extension as in your image 1 in Reply #5, nada, nothing, zero.

As mentioned in the main beta thread, you need to wait for 12 hours according to the devs.

I hadn't opened FF since early yesterday and didn't have the extension there yesterday.

It has been days not hours and it still doesn't bloody work.  The main topic introducing the 17.2.2287 beta was posted on 17 February 2017, (17:28:14 UK local time).

I have seen nothing from the developers, only your posts stating that they have said something about 12 hours and it has been close to 1 day and 22 hours since then.

If the devs are going to introduce delays/invites or whatever, then it should be in the MAIN post of the introductory topic, so users aren't wasting their time.

I'm done wasting any more time on this after having uninstalled it from the avastUI.

I don't really care where it was posted, if it isn't in the avast forums and there are restrictions to a beta or regular release, then users/beta testers should be made aware of it.

I don't feel I should have to join slack or any other medium to find out information that should be released to avast users/beta testers in the forums.
