[SOLVED] Firefox 8 just blocked avast! Easy Pass
« on: November 19, 2011, 07:47:36 PM »
OK, what a hell is going on  :o Firefox just blocked avast! Easy Pass toolbar as security threat and gives me no option to re-enable it...

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/blocked/i45

Seems we (I) need help from avast! here...  ;D

Well reading the link that you posted, it would appear to be blocked for compatibility/stability as it mentions RoboForm and isn't EasyPass an avast branded version of this ?

Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.5.6015 (build 22.5.7263.730) UI 1.0.711/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Yes it is. FF blocked RoboForm ant it affected Easy Pass as it is RoboForm based, so I have to use IE9 at the moment, because all my logins again works only with IE  ;D The most thing I hate at the moment is FF, because it gave me no options - add-on was working fine for me, but it's blocked now...  :'(

I don't think that is the way they work ;D

Since this effects Roboform versions 7.6.1 and lower, and your image shows avast! EasyPass version 7.5.8, I wonder what the policy is that they have with RoboForm about getting the latest updates.

Problem being the RoboForm site shows 7.4 as latest, digging much deeper to find a change log, is their version news page, shows version 7.6.3 is the latest, http://www.roboform.com/support/news. This and 7.6.2 had a whole slew of firefox fixes.

One specific to firefox crashes:
* Firefox: fixed crashes related to using own build of Gecko SDK - use official build.

Don't know how avast go about updating EasyPass to this version.

Well, I don't think I'm the only one, so I know they will release updated version as soon as they are ready to do it  ;)

I'm so happy I do not use Firefox.  ;D

I would rather use Google Chrome.  ;)

What about running Firefox with admin rights and try?
