The download for Free: -https://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline.exe triggers Firefox's not HTTPS connection on the redirect to the actual download as it is an http connection.  See attached image.

Not great impression for a Security Based company, I reported this on the last program update but it is still the same.

Yeah... That's strange why all the offline files are provided via HTTP.

thanks for this release , installed it this morning ( avast one ) update went smooth , but opening the gui and loading it fully takes some time and the " white screen " is there , just like the other avast products.

where the firewall feature for free users hasn't appeared even though it says it's available at the end of October
while I'm already using the latest UI, don't tell me that the firewall is still locked for general users overall ? >:(

it was already the case last week when I wanted to download version 21.8.... It's a bit strange as security for a link from a company like avast

Hi, no idea why it got removed from your system. Anyway, if you need it urgently, you could switch to beta-channel, it should be available there.

Edit: How did you update to 21.9..?

Please pardon me but I can't find the place to post that since the update this morning I am not able to load one of my games in my Brave browser.  I think I know what I did...I chose "yes" on an option but I have no idea how to get back there...it was while addressing the "Global Privacy"options.

I really need the help or if not here can you please point me in the right direction?

Your time and consideration will be appreciated.  :)

After installing it on Windows 10 laptop Youtube started bombarding me with ads even though I have AdGuard browser extension ad blocker in Firefox. This never happened before, like it somehow made adblocker ineffective. Hm.
