Firefox 4 = WebRep x 2
« on: March 23, 2011, 02:58:07 PM »
Hi  :)


Yep!  
Others May Have NO Webrep... But I Ended Up With Two  ::)

Avast WebRep Icons Showing Where WOT Should Have Been  ???

I've just had to uninstall Avast WebRep from Firefox 4 because I kept getting... See Picture Below!

1st Search would always result in what you see in the picture.
2nd Search would show normal WOT and WebRep results.

Note!
It was a clean install of Firefox 4
&
Tried installing, uninstalling, reinstalling WOT twice.


Before I have a go at putting Avast WebRep back in again... Has anyone else noticed this?

Thanks!

Hally

Thanks. Meanwhile you could perhaps lend one set of those redundant icons to the unfortunate folks who are missing them.  ;D

Hopefuly this has been fixed now. The trouble is that it is difficult to reproduce this issue as Firefox decides who gets loaded first. I assume this only happened when WOT got loaded before WebRep. Rport back if you still experience this after the next program update please.

Hi k.u.r.t  :)

Unfortunatly...
Have already uninstalled WebRep from Firefox 4  :(
At The Time... Seemed the only Solution!

Perhaps in a few days...
I'll try reinstalling WebRep again  ;)

Thanks!

If you are still seeing double after the reinstall you might try this.

Right click in Firefox to the right of Help.  Left click on Customize.   After the Customize screen pops up try dragging one of the WebRep icons into it and see what happens.

We are talking about doubled icons in search results, not in the toolbar.
