If I installed this new version might or not get the firewall but  I don't want it so I'll skip this. version.

Had you read the post Reply #54 (5 above yours), you would see it is offered, you don't have to accept.

Skipping this program update version doesn't meant it isn't going to be in the next program update, are you going to skip that too.

In case anyone is still concerned with the firewall thing.

I did not have the firewall installed previous with my avast and after the update it has remained that way, no firewall added. still giving me the option to install it if I wanted to.

Has an update that fixes the broken Export /Restore settings feature been pushed out yet?

Hi, see: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=309394.msg1667033#msg1667033
If I read correctly, the answer is it's not pushed out.  Further, a fix still being worked on in the context of the next version beta.

In terms of the firewall, I uninstalled Avast when updating Windows to a new release.  This was necessary when doing so a few prior times to the point where I now presume it has to be done at this point.  When I reinstalled 21.9 (which is where restoring saved Avast settings is handy), I find I now have the Firewall as a "New" available protection feature, but not turned on (which is what I want).  I guess once the Firewall has been pushed out you don't need 21.10 to get it.

v21.11 iso ut, why haven't you posted it????

Only in beta as far as I'm aware - https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=309394.0 - only released on 09 December 2021, 13:31:40.

Are you running a beta build (?) as that would update automatically.

I had been hanging back on 21.10, retaining 21.09, I have program updates set to manual. I have just checked and yes 21.11 has just been released.  I can only assume (dangerous) that the 21.11 beta was a quick release bug fix/check.

I see the new firewall in the Protection area, not installed automatically, but awaiting download (which for now it will wait).
Time to update my signature.

There is no need to have unchecked it as it isn't downloaded, nor installed.

I can confirm that the offline installer has been updated to v21.11 (21.11.2500 (build 21.11.6809)).  The corresponding "What's fixed" info for it in the beta thread is:

. deadlock in importing settings from file
. conflict between two internal security components making MS Internet Explorer unable to run

However, the last developer comment in the beta thread on the settings issue is: "There is a plan to re-test this functionality in the future as even now we found out some of the settings does not work well after import and/or reset so we will focus on it and will touch the reported issue too."  v21.11 may just be "better enough" than v21.10, rather than fully fixed, to be worth pushing out.

There is no need to have unchecked it as it isn't downloaded, nor installed.
As I explained in the video,
unless you do a custom install, the module wasn't installed.
It was an unchecked item that required a custom install and selection
to make it to your system.

You mean there isn't a "NEW Avast Version 21.11 ..." topic here in the Forum?  Or something else?  I don't think Avast pushes new versions out all at once.  And, if you follow the "Free: https://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline.exe" offline installer link from the top post in this (v21.10) topic, I've reported that's been updated to 21.11).
