Avast SecureLine VPN for Firefox
« on: June 30, 2019, 05:05:32 PM »
Avast SecureLine VPN for Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/avast-secureline-vpn/

The Avast SecureLine VPN Web Extension is a simple browser application that allows you to control your SecureLine VPN easier and faster from your browser toolbar. One click, and you can turn your VPN on or off, or change where you’re connecting from to give you a perfectly seamless privacy experience.

Please note that this is not a stand-alone VPN product. It requires Avast SecureLine VPN to be installed on your PC or Mac, which must be activated with a valid license. But once you get that going, then it’ll be good to go.

Nice addition to the Browser.
Very convenient.
No issues, I added the extension on one machine while Secureline (beta version 5.4.468) was Off, then used the extension to turn the VPN  On :)

EDIT: Confirm Bob's issue with non beta version 5.3.458 on machine HP Compaq saying to install Secureline
Guess the Browser extension only works with the 5.4 beta version of Secureline

Kind of strange to roll out an extension that only works with the beta version unless,
that beta is about to become the full release.

No way to update from within the program ???
Only way to update seems to download the latest version from here: https://www.avast.com/secureline-vpn#pc
and install it over the existing version.

Hi Bob, you should get auto-updated sooner or later (staged release).

Just mentioning, the icon for Browser extension shows 'Green' when connected, while the taskbar icon shows 'Orange' when connected. ???
