Since the update, my web pages will note load unless you hit refresh over & over. This is regardless of Edge, Chrome , or Avast Secure as the browser. This is not an issue with my internet or of me making a change in something. I turned my computer on one morning; Avast had the notice it had updated; and then all web pages started having issues.

Hi,
What about 21.9 (21.9.2494) yesterday update ?
21.9.2494 was a beta version released yesterday. If you're not on beta channel and still get this, .2494 may be pushed into release channel now.

It appears that Avast AV: 21.9 (21.9.2493) has been silently replaced by Avast AV: 21.9 (21.9.2494) including updating the installers?

Such a minor thing a 0.0.0001 increment very minor bug fix - Fixed an issue with missing translation during installation (tested in beta first). This
would probably get updated in the Engine and Virus definitions update with no user input required.

You probably remember that I don't like behind-the-scenes program updates (which are known to happen even with the manual-update setting which I have).  In this case the update control screen flagged the program as being behind, but the pending update was NOT applied until I hit ye olde "CHECK FOR UPDATES" button.  That led to me try downloading the offline installer and seeing that the installer had been changed from 21.9.6675.0 to 21.9.6698.0 which meant it had been updated.  That further meant I could have avoided "CHECK FOR UPDATES,"  downloaded the installer and updated Avast per my preferences (Internet off during the update) instead.

Apart from Free Firewall, are you going to bring any new feature to protect users in the near future? In addition, I hope that the Avast teams should consider removing extra apps in Avast Free Antivirus like Avast SecureLine, Avast Driver Updater, Avast Cleanup, etc because they are definitely not free, no need to include them in the Avast Free installers.

I'm afraid I don't remember that you don't like behind-the-scenes program updates and I too have my Program Updates set to Manual.  One difference here is that I'm still on 21.8.2487 (build 21.8.6586.697) as I usually wait for things to stabilise and that hasn't updated behind the scenes.  So I'm usually a 00.1 increment behind.

I don't know why they did it this way in this case (e.g. having a beta release for such a small increment) as opposed to the Engine and Virus definitions update, that can deal with minor bug fixes.  This does happen and the 'current' off-line installation file would also be updated behind the scenes, User Interface updates also happen this way and they to would be updated behind the scenes. 

Then there is the Emergency Update function for more serious/critical bug fixes, which would also be included in the 'current' off-line installation file.

This behind the scenes update 'current' off-line installation file, is no doubt because avast doesn't offer old builds for download, only the 'current' version.

I thought I heard avast say that there would only be one engine update (roughly) every month.
And for issues (which avast solved quite quickly) that are far more annoying than a translation issue during installation, they make us wait a month for the next update.... I don't understand why this time we got 2 updates in a week ...for so little

I don't think an 'Engine' Update is what you are talking about, I believe it is the 'Program' Update that are roughly on a monthly basis (or more like 10 a year).  'Engine' and virus definitions update happen frequently.  But for the most part these will only contain virus definition updates.

Engine updates are generally user to resolve bugs/issues, etc.

Yes, it's the program updates I'm talking about, sorry for my mistake, it doesn't explain why we had 2 in 1 week. At this rate we're going to exceed 10/year  ;D

edit:Glad that users who are not on the beta channel have been informed by other of the release notes because here, there is no edition of the 1st post  :-\

Whilst this is technically a program update as it went through a whole day in beta (why that was felt necessary is beyond me)

As I don't know why a - Such a minor 0.0.0001 increment would require it, other than to see if the Translation issue was resolved - Fixed an issue with missing translation during installation (tested in beta first).

As I mentioned - This would probably/ordinarily get updated in the Engine and Virus definitions update with no user input required.  Or even if related to translation, a UI update. 

It just seems very strange to me why they decided to go down this route, and cause this amount of fuss because of it.

Absolutely, I was already a bit surprised when I asked the question (#31) and I am even more surprised now that I read the beta notes ("for so little").
It may be just a routing error on the update servers, but we don't know since avast didn't communicate. ???
