All seems to have installed fine.  I feel a bit guilty seeming to never report any bugs, but I never seem to find any! 

 

Just one question, is the "Reinstall Browser Extension" function going to reappear at some point?

Don't feel bad, you have been reporting compatibility with Malwarebytes, which I think is very valuable.

 

"Reinstall Browser Extension" had a lot of technical problems and was removed. Currently we are not planning bringing it back. Of course if a lot of people feel that the functionality is needed then we can re-consider.

I'm sorry I didn't understand your question.

Wanted to know if bank protection should pop up some message when it kicks in, sorry for being unclear.

With regards reinstall browser extension, I guess it depends on what that actually did, and whether the functionality is still required. What happens now, if the browser extension does need to be reinstalled, or is giving problems for some reason?

The banking protection should work exactly the same way as in previous beta release. Bank triggers the protection as long as it's over HTTPS. Some banks have first pages over HTTP and they don't trigger it, but it worked this way already before.

Re: FS Protection PC Release 184

Hi,

 

I have to admit, F-Secure Betas are more stable than some other well known AV suites that I have used. Good job.

 

I just have a few GUI related issues to report for now.

 

1.) I have a HiDPI screen (4K) and I use Windows 10 with 200% scaling. While most of the F-Secure GUI scales pretty well, The SCAN screen (when I do a right click context scan) or a full system scan is very "BLURRY" and "Low quality". It just looks BAD.

 

2.) The F-Secure logo in the "Right click context scan menu" is also very TINY. Itis a small issue but breaks the whole experience in my opinion.

 

Thanks.

Please submit a bug report through the beta portal and attach screenshots of the problems to make it clearer. We prefer bug reports over this community since they allow us to contact you for more information.
