I really like the new update notification, at least in Internet Security. No junk and a link to info on what was fixed or changed which is really nice touch.

A point of interest/note as far as what's new and what's been fixed, this topic Impossible to execute Autochk on disc C: - error (766f6c756d652e63 3f1). This was not the only topic relating to this problem.

It was reported in this topic that this was to be fixed in 19.4 and that it was fixed in the later 19.4 beta build, but no mention of it in the 'What we FIXED' section of the change log.

For me autocheck / chkdsk works now. But a new issue manifested itself ... now every time I start Firefox I'm being asked for my certificate store master password... ::) Not kidding.

Weird considering:
the - HTTPS scanning now works with the latest versions of Firefox
is on the What we FIXED:

I just wonder if it might be needed to reimport the certificate.

I just tried re-importing the certificate that I exported from avast Old Interface\SSL scanning\Export certificate  (Still don't know a better way of getting to it), but result is the same. Still wants me to enter the master password on every start.

There was a similar (possibly the same) issue that I believe Asyn posted in Slack, mention was Firefox ESR'
Unfortunately I don't know anymore as I have not encountered this issue.

Personally I'm using Firefox 66.0.2, I believe it to be the latest release/stable (non beta) version.

It does the same even if I try disabling web shields, HTTPS scanning...or even all shields.


Later addition:
Reinstalling Firefox doesn't help. If you install it from scratch (no profiles or private data) of course it is OK, but if you enable Master password protection, it immediately requests for the password upon every restart.
 
So the question is, why is Avast trying to access this on every start ?

I'm having a problem with the latest version of Avast and Firefox 67 beta as well almost every https site I visit won't load just gives a certificate error so I had to switch to Avira until this is fixed as it makes Firefox unusable

Hi guys,

as I wrote here https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=226187.msg1500574#msg1500574 this bug (master password dialog) comes from Mozilla. It affects Firefox ESR and Firefox 66 as well.

Reagrds,
HK

New Avast (free and premier) won't install properly on win10 LTSB 1607 x64. The GUI fails to load (after install) and it says something about beng embarassed :P I press restart, it fails, then try to fix it and it fails too. Didn't have any antivirus on it before. Did the repair install, avast clear etc, nothing works.

What type of installer did you use: online or offline ?
An offline installation often solves this kind of problems
