avast! WebRep incompatible with Firefox 5.0
« on: June 18, 2011, 05:33:39 AM »
Dear Sirs

With the installation of Firefox 5.0 into my home PC running Windows Home Premium with Service Pack 1, Firefox reveals that avast! WebRep is not compatible and has been disabled. 

Appreciate it much if any remedial action will be taken on the current avast! Free Antivirus 6.0.1125.

Regards,
A. Chung

This was already pointed out on another thread.

Due to technical issues with how Firefox Beta is updated or something like that it is going to have to wait until 5.0 RTW comes out before WebRep is compatible.

Suggest you search the forum for the specific reason.

Hi, Nesivos

My installed Firefox is the final version 5, which has just been released.

I think it may be appropriate to have avast! WebRep fixed in due course.

Regards,
A. Chung

Please post the download site for Firefox 5.
4.01 is the latest AFAIK.

Three days earlier than originally planned, the Mozilla Foundation has released version 5 of the popular Internet browser Firefox. In comparison to the previous version, the changes keep within limits.

Is primarily the developers have optimized the surface and added numerous points, resulting in a higher speed. This will be achieved in part through a change in the triggering event of background tabs, here was the period increased to 1,000 milliseconds. Among the other new features include support for CSS animations and also paint WebGL called cross-domain textures. The last point made ​​previously a security hole in Firefox dar. A complete overview of all changes and versions of future planned features can be found on the Mozilla site.

Work on the next version of Firefox, however, have already begun. With the sixth edition, which is currently in alpha status, is primarily the revised user interface and especially the speed can be increased. Firefox 6 should appear as 7 later this year.

Sorry for my bad english  :P
