Avast web shield not working with opera 9.63
« on: December 25, 2008, 04:43:43 AM »
Hi,

while surfing the internet using opera 9.63 I notice that avast web shield ain't scanning any incoming traffic, however on other browser such as Firefox 3 and IE 7/8 it works like a charm. Currently I have avast home version 4.8.1296.

When I revert back to opera 9.62 the web shield does work, this also happen on my laptop. Any ideas on what I can do?

Thanks
