Does not work with Lion
« on: July 29, 2011, 05:04:46 PM »
This is probably already known, but after installing lion with an existing Avast Mac Beta, lost all  Web browsing capability and inbound mail
could still ping/send mail
disabling web-shield and mail shield  re-enables access.

this is a known flaw and we're working on a working workaround (the original cause is redirection functionality in Lion's PF firewall which hasn't been fixed by Apple yet - at least in this first Lion release it's still broken - thus, our present beta just preventively disables network shields on 10.7).

The latest beta update (avast-29138.dmg) solves the web/mail shield issue on Lion.
