Hi Martin
My version of Avast Premier is from 21-12-2017 and I have tried to update, but it says that the program is updated.
I cant find the version number for the Password program.

The version referred is version of browser extension so
For Chrome you can find version of extension by opening this address in Chrome browser
chrome://extensions/
For Firefox you can find the information by opening this address in Firefox

Hi Martin
your link for Chrome leads to an adress where it says "Server not found"
and the link for Firefox does not work, nothing happens.

My fault I have just copied that thinking the browser can handle that.

Please paste those links to address bar of appropriate browser and hit enter to view list of your extensions to check their versions

Thanks for the report, we already figured out that our fix is not general treatment for this case and we are collecting cases for 2nd round of optimizations, links like yours will help us a lot to provide final solution to this situation.

I was having this issue as well, in Firefox, and found a workaround.  I disabled the hardware acceleration in Firefox and I have not had any issues thus far.

My system:
Windows 10 Version 1709
Firefox 58.0.2 (64-bit)
Avast Passwords version 1.1.3327
Avast Internet Security version 18.1.2326

How to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox:


Open Firefox
Open a new tab and type about:preferences to open the preferences option page
On the General page,  scroll down to the Performance options
Uncheck the 'Use recommended performance settings' to see additional options
Uncheck the 'Use hardware acceleration when available'

Not sure if this will help anyone else but its a quick test and if it doesn't help you can just revert the changes by checking the 'Use recommended performance settings'

Good luck  ;D

I have version 1.1.3327 and still have the issue on pages at zulily.com such as this one:

https://www.zulily.com/e/gund-280209.html

Freshdirect.com is better but I get a lot of slowdown when opening sections from the main page, such as Easy Order or On Sale, View All. It's a page on top of the main page that opens up, with product listings.

Thanks for working on this.

We are aware the problem persisted and we are trying to find out solution for it. Our extension is having troubles with pages having lot of inputs and we are trying to figure out how to fix the issue without breaking some of currently working sites, so far it doesn't seem to be easy, that's why it take us so long dealing with that.

Zulily is working normally for me now. Fresh Direct main page (pages within pages that open) are still slower but better. Thank you!
