Finjan Vital Security For Firefox Not Updated?
« on: October 09, 2010, 08:27:48 PM »
Well, I have Firefox 3.6.10 and it said Finjan version 1.314 couldn't download because it wasn't compatible. My question is, is Finjan still updated for Firefox?

As far as know Finjan has been sold to a company call m86security see link http://www.m86security.com/ this new company hasn't plan updating the the old Finjan version to support the latest Firefox browser v3.6.10 this can only work on version 3.6.9 not the latest. According to the new company whether their planning to update the version or end of finjan support browsing version commisson, I haven't heard any news if they are planning to continue or not otherwise we may have to move over onto WOT.

It's only partially true. I have Finjan 1.314 installed on Firefox 3.6.10. This version of Finjan was taken from http://securebrowsing.finjan.com/ and it is compatible with Firefox 1.5-3.7a1pre.
May the FOSS be with you!

Well it seems that they have changed the .xpi file add-on installation file, the install.rdf file within the .xpi only supports 3.0.* (see image). So this version, obtained from the link George gave, shouldn't even support firefox 3.5 or 3.6, much less 3.6.10.

I have Finjan 1.314 add-on with Firefox 3.6.10 on six XP systems, and it works flawlessly (for now, anyway) except the Finjan/M86 servers are sometimes slow to respond or not available. I occasionally get this same behavior when testing a site at http://www.m86security.com/resources/url-analysis.asp.

It will be a shame if M86 discontinues this service for Firefox users, and maybe eventually IE users. If this happens, VTzilla (Browser Addons tab) will be a good choice for pre-scanning files and websites for FF users.

For those interested, the Firefox 3.6 add-on compatibility check can be disabled, but use with caution. How-To Geek

Well it is possible to modify the install.rdf (as in the image) and that only changes the single add-on and not compatibility checking for all add-ons.

You are right, that would be a better method. As stated before, I am not having any compatibility issues.

Trust your eyes if you don't trust my words.

   

I didn't modify the install.rdf, nor force installation with the help of other extensions. And you can read about the extension's compatibility on the first screenshot.

No, it looks like the company have consciously modified the xpi file effectively blocking anything higher than firefox 3.0.* as in my image, that is what they are currently serving up right now. When they made this change I don't know, but obviously after you installed/updated it.

Try uninstalling at (not advised if you want to use it) and then try to install what is on the site, your in for a shock it won't work.
