Browsing Protection messes up Firefox toolbars

The F-Secure Browsing Protection plugin in Firefox is too rigid. Normally, I can choose if I want to see big or small icons, with or without text, but the F-Secure plugin does not allow me to change the settings - it always shows big icons with text on its toolbar. I thought I found a solution, by moving the icons to a different toolbar. I created a newtoolbar of my own and moved all safety tools on it. On that toolbar, I can choose small icons without text, and I can organize it as I wish. However, every time I restart Firefox, that toolbar completely disappears, and all the icons with it. After some trials and errors with other plugins, the only way I got it working was by disabling the F-Secure plugin.

So I have only two choices: either I let F-Secure plugin to reserve valuable space by big inocs and accompanied text, or I disable the plugin for good. I cannot see how it would be too much to ask to have some more flexibility, letting me have some more control over my browser appearance. I don't mind if F-Secure wants to keep its icons visible and makes checks for it, but the current behavior doesn't even guarantee that. It just doesn't make sense.

Re: Browsing Protection messes up Firefox toolbars

Hi,

 

the small Arrow next to the F-icon in the bar offers to minimize and it is also placed it to the left of the URL-entry field, so I do not see you point. Maybe you could offer a screenshot.

Re: Browsing Protection messes up Firefox toolbars

I told that when I move the icon to a new toolbar, F-Secure deletes the whole toolbar, which makes the icon invisible. If the behavior was instead to move the F-Secure icon back to where F-Secure wants ot have it, I would understand your response - well, somehow - but with the current behavior, I cannot understand your attitude.

Anyway, the other tool (WOT) that also checks if its icon is visible not only makes a check, but enforces the icon to be beside the url. If you fix the immediate problem by enfocing the icon to the same place, these two tools will be in conflict. Besides, I don't want all plugins to place their icons beside the toolbar. I want to be the one who decides which toolbar is the one where I have space for them. If I could change the F-Secure toolbar settings to small icons without text, I would be happy to move all of the other safety plugin icons to the same toolbar. I don't care what the name of the toolbar is, as long as I can control the sapce reservation the way I want to have it. Currently, however, I rather have F-Secure disabled than have it mess up the toolbars. Now of course it is disabled anyway, due to FF5 incompatibility.

Re: Browsing Protection messes up Firefox toolbars

The version I have is 1.10, but as I said, it is now disabled, because I upgraded to FF5. I cannot recall getting an update to the plugin very recently, so I assume that it was version 1.0 that I was trying out in FF4, before Frefox update.

Re: Browsing Protection messes up Firefox toolbars

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!
