*Even with Web Shield giving *itself access, am I correct that I still have full control over Firefox Settings?
Yes.

Hello - I want to correct what Asyn has been saying about leaving that statement on top of Options and Settings.  With that message present and Avast having control over Firefox Settings, you DO NOT have complete control of Firefox or your Settings Options.   Try this - go into Privacy and Security and try to Manage Data to delete a site's cookies and data.   You can't.   I'm sure there are other Options you can't access.   I just found this one and searched for ways to get rid of Avast control of my browser and removed it

Avast is overstepping with it's control of Firefox.  Firefox Quantum also does a better job of protecting me online than Avast has ever done.

Just tried, it works for me.

@  allenergy11
That doesn't appear to be an issue for me.

But I start from Privacy and Security and Clear Data - in this case I didn't want to clear the cashed data and only Cookies and Site Data and that worked just fine.  Checking the Manage Data option returned zero data.

Perhaps you should try it this way.

Note that I had to log back in to the forums to be able to post this as the cookies had gone.
