I also had to start the editor as Admin via right-click in order to be able to save the file in the folder.

That's one that I would usually forget to mention, using XP Pro on my main system I'm not troubled with that major pain in the rear, UAC.

The UAC is not that bad in Win 7. I can't compare to Vista, because I skipped that, but it's not as annoying as I had thought beforehand. As a matter of fact, I like it.

I shudder to think what it was like in Vista if you think it isn't that bad in win7. On my netbook with win7 and UAC set on the lowest level I think it is the devils spawn.

I frequently wanted to know just whose computer it was mine or UAC. I absolutely hated its total lack of configurability as it constantly block the same application time after time after time.

In the end I gave up and completely disabled it, a right pain in the rear.

Ok, anyway let's wait for the next program update and report back whether if it has not been resolved.

Confirmed resolved in 6.0.1044 on my XP Pro ff 4.0 and on my win7 netbook ff 3.6.1016 system.

Grey has nothing to do with the avast update, that is the back-end servers supporting the webrep function not being available, etc.
