Hi!

 

Firefox 5.0 has just been released. As usual when new version is released, browsing protection is not supported. Is there update coming soon? Thanks!

    Hi,

     

    sorry for the late reply on this topic.

     

    I do not have the information at hand.

     

    We will get back to you shortly. Sorry for the delay!

     

    Best regards,

    Just installed F.F. 50, and noticed that the version listed in the add-ons folder is: " Browsing Protection 1.10", which is the one that's not compatible with this browser.

    Hopefully this will be updated soon, as I'm missing this extra feature of Shaw Secure (rebranded version of F-Secure).

    Thanks

    Hello Everybody,

     

    Our current estimate for Browsing Protection support for Firefox 5 is July 8th 2011.

    Woh, 8th of July,

    this is a long time...

    What are you planing for the future? Mozilla will release faster the FireFox version? We have to wait every release about two weeks for the update?

    Seems the transition from Gecko 2 to Gecko 5 causes unexpected problems. Concerning the future,this is what we received:

     

    We're aiming for a proactive approach, where development and testing is done with beta versions, plus extra days for testing with the Firefox RTM version.

    Hi,

     

    It seems this is still not the announced Plugin, although it has build Number 5604

    The FF.Installer still limits to V4.*

     

    Sorry for the confusion!

    This was sent to Corp-Beta-Updates:

    (hope it works this time ;-) )

    ------------

    There's a new Browsing Protection release candidate available

    This release contains improvement in terms of security and Firefox 5 support

    The visible version string is "F-Secure Browsing Protection SW Update 2011-07-07_01"

    The update is distributed through the policy manager which has been configured as specified in the instruction page: http://www.f-secure.com/en_EMEA-Labs/beta-programs/business-users-beta/beta-update-channel/instructions.html

    Manual installation packages for all current release candidates are available as follows:

    The executables are self-installing on a system with the appropriate F-secure client. These manual installation packages also contain other engines we currently have in a release candidate state, which are due to production later.

    Hello,

     

    Our current estimate, if no problems are found during the beta testing, that we'll release the final version by the end of next week. I will let you know once we start deploying the final version.

    Just checked under: "About", and I noticed that today browsing protected has been update to SW1.10 build 5617, which is now compatible with Firefox 5.0.1, and is working perfectly with that browser.

    Thanks.

    It seems, that everything is working fine with the addon. Thank you F-Secure!

    Now... I need the addon for the Chrome Browser and F-Secure is perfect ^^

    So, i have read on some IT-News pages, that the FireFox 6 will release next week.

    Works the Browser Protection already on the FF6??

    Sure, the beta FSDBUTDATE9.EXE has the FF6 plugin for a week or so already (see post on 07-07-2011 10:15 PM ). The release will moste likely only happen when it was tested against FF6 RTM, i.e. in bets case the same day.

    Thanks Matthias,

     

    That latest update of "fsdbpdate9" did the trick for me and updated my virus definitions completely today.

    Earlier they were 8 days old and I was unable to update them.

    Does this also mean the automatic update on my Shaw Secure will work again?

  • MJ-perComp
    MJ-perComp Posts: 1,101 Superuser

    Hi,

     

    most likely not, because fsdbupdate will always update evrything (that is why it is that big)!

     

    OTOH the fix might already be in testing and if so it could be included as well. Just report back tomorrow.

     

    www.f-secure.com/dbtracker should tell you the latest updates and if you compare those with the downloads of AUA you know where you are.

     

    Please let us know.

    Hi,

     

    just create a fsaua.cfg

     

    log_level=debug
    debug_level=9

     

    reboot, reproduce,

     

    debug_level=0

     

    reboot.

     

    mannually send fsaua.log and fsaua.dbg together with FSDAIAG.TAR.GZ to SHAW's support.

     

    BR

    Hi Matthias,

     

    It seems that I was mistaken in my previous post as I did find: "fsaua.cfg" under programs, and I opened it with Notepad.

    But all I could find listed was:

     

    log_level=debug

    debug_level=2

     

    You mentioned in your last post that I should add certain lines, does this mean that these replace the above.

    Please, let me know, as I want do do things right and am not too familiar with these things..

     

    Thanks
