After upgrading to Firefox 40 you start getting warnings about unsigned F-Secure add-ons in Firefox

As of release 40, to protect its users, Mozilla has started to verify and sign third-party add-ons to ensure that their add-ons are safe. Firefox warns you if an add-on has not been verified through their add-on signing process.

Earlier Mozilla did not require that add-ons be signed, and due to this our users have started getting warnings about unsigned F-Secure add-ons in Firefox.

We are working on getting our add-ons verified and signed by Mozilla, and we will update this article with the latest info as soon as the add-on signing has been implemented.

Meanwhile, we assure that F-Secure's add-ons are safe to install and use.



Best Regards

-Ben

Re: After upgrading to Firefox 40 you start getting warnings about unsigned F-Secure add-ons in Firefox

Hi Ben,

I had a not dissimilar issue with my Android HTC One M9 phone recently, which was popping up security certificate warnings when I logged into the forum.

As it happens, it didn't do it just now, but would that have been connected to the Firefox issues? I'm just using the stock HTC browser on the phone .

Hi Simon,

We add on the 14th some certificate issue (for a very brief period of time)with the login to our community.

 

I would assume this is what you experienced.

Let me know should that happen again. 



Best Regards

-Ben

OK, thanks Ben. I didn't really think anything much of it at the time, as these seem to pop up a lot on my phone.

Re: After upgrading to Firefox 40 you start getting warnings about unsigned F-Secure add-ons in Firefox

Dear Ben,

 

Some of our hungarian customers report:

 

- They saw a pop-up notification, asking them to accept a platform update for the already installed copy of F-Secure Anti-Virus / Internet Security 2015 software on Windows

- The update process ran and completed (and asked for a reboot in some cases)

- After the update, some customers are started seeing small F-Secure pop-up notifications every few days, which tell them "No threats were found" or "No threats in the network". (Regrettably, I don't have a screenshot yet.)

- These kind of regular pop-ups weren't seen before the platform update and the customers didn't modify the settings, e.g. for scheduled scan.

 

The customers wish to know if this is normal behaviour in F-Secure? They would like to have more information concerning what kind of threat were searcherd for.

 

Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely:

Tamas Feher, 2F 2000 Kft., Hungary.

Hi Tamas,

 

Recent upgrade to latest version should be normal. As for the newly appearing notifications it would indeed be great to have the screenshot to get a better idea of what is triggering them.



Best Regards

Hello Ben, I have to ask because I'm very paranoid when things like these happen, is it normal for my Browsing Protection add-on (from F-Secure) to display that it couldn't be verified for use in Firefox? Otherwise the add-on works alright. Thanks.

Hello VictorD,

 

If these messages started to appear after upgrading to Firefox 40, it would be normal.

Please refer to my first post in this thread.



Best Regards

-Ben
