What are the chances of Safe Money (and URL advisor, Virtual Keyboard, etc.) ever catching up now that FF20.0 is out, I wonder? How nice it would be to be able to use them. Sigh.

Chances are very high. The question is: When?

Answer: Sometime in the future. I think I can narrow that time frame down a little bit to somewhere around when Kaspersky is ready. When will Kaspersky be ready? Maybe Tech Support knows.

Your post is the first Fx 20 add-ons post. This is the second. What will the third post say? Such a philosophical question, so early in the Spring.

Thank you, Richbuff. I'm just letting off steam here, really. It's just makes me sad considering that Kaspersky makes what is reputedly the best Windows protection software going. Maybe they should give up on add-ons for Firefox altogether because it's not doing their reputation any good this way. It would be nice to hear a statement from them on this, not just "when it's ready, it's ready".

Hi Wilf21,

I had to revert back to FF18, to make sure that all the KIS 2013 add-ons are working, including the SafeMoney functionality.

Have you considered this option?

All the best,

TrDo.

PS. If you do, disable the auto-updates.

Thanks TrDo. I could do that I guess. Although I don't really like going back to earlier versions of software such as FF when newer versions may have fixed vulnerabilities.

Hey Wilf21,

I understand. I really hate that do. But in this case, I had no option.

What I did to compensate for the FF18 reversion, is that I installed the NoScript add-on. It's an added layer of security, despite the fact that it can get a bit tiring at moments.

But it's a super add-on for FF. Try it. And this way you get all KIS 2013 Browser functionality as well.

All the best,

TrDo.


PS. I also run WinPatrol, Zemana AntiLogger, MBAM Pro and Comodo Firewall (Defense+ Only).

Thanks, I may well give it a go. Of course, then I'll never know if and when KIS functionality returns to a later version of FF.

I came here looking for a solution to the much debated/argued topic and found too many comments to read them all. As I was reading some of the comments it occurred to me that maybe this isn't exclusively Kaspersky's responsibility but rather BOTH Kaspersky and Firefox. Firefox updates WAY too often for anyone to be able to keep up with any type of add-on. There is (debatable) good reason for this, but I don't see why add-ons need to be broken for most every update to the browser. It seems to me that Firefox should develope an "add-on engine" that is universal to all (or at least most) versions of browsers and this engine should last a very long time until the engine itself needs to be updated, at which time Kaspersky and other add-on developers will have to update their add-ons.

My point is, maybe it would be more fruitful to complain to the Firefox people and not the Kaspersky people to get this issue resolved.

I can also understand the point of view that Kaspersky, as a major AV company, should be able to keep up with their Firefox add-ons, though I don't believe this would not be the most efficient way of resolving the issue.

Until a satisfactory solution is found, I will patiently wait for the "G" update to come out, as I think (hope) that is what will resolve my particular issue.

Welcome.

I agree with You ... but for now, it seems patch g will not resolve the compatibility with FF20 ... unless They deliver a new update before the oficial release smile.gif

Regards.

Yes, one of the comments I did read stated that "G" would be out April 10. My issue is with FF 17 though, not 20, but thank you for the reply.

Please - no one tell me about the importance of keeping my browser updated. I am well aware of it, but I have my reasons (as do a lot of other people) for not updating on a daily basis. I believe the browser add-ons should just work, regardless if the browser is up-to-date, securety-wise, or not - hence my idea of the "add-on engine".

I am happy enough with Kaspersky, whether the add-ons work or not, even though they were part of the reason I purchased it. To me, it would be icing on the cake and that is all.

Anyway, this topic is not intended to rehash the arguments/debates from other topics. Please do not do that. It was to hopefully reduce those comments by redirecting them to where I believe (at least at this time) they would be of more help.

I haven't had the time to try out the ESR version yet, but I suspect the reference to "corporate" is because maybe this ESR version isn't updated as often or maybe it doesn't include cosmetic updates, as an example, so that corporations can determine whether or not they want to divert resources to fixing things that an update might break vs. putting those resources to another use while using the "same", un-updated browser. In other words, it may only do security updates. This is how I look at it for my personal use. I prefer to take my chances without the security updates and cosmetic, or otherwise unimportant, updates vs. finding (or waiting for) updated plugins and software that is compatible with the updated browser. I've been doing it this way for over ten years and have NEVER gotten an infection. The only time I update the browser is when I absolutely have to, for my purposes. Same thing with the operating system too, BTW. I read about too many updates that break things that I deem it not necessary, but this is a whole other discussion not intended for this topic.

@richbuff - thanks for merging. I really didn't want to open a new topic for this, but couldn't decide where it would best fit.

I have been using the ESR version of Firefox for some time now. It works well with all Kaspersky add ons and it's just been updated to version 17.0.5.
As long as all the add ons work who cares if there's a few bits of cosmetics missing, install it and have a much easier life! supercool.gif

I think the antibanner is working for FF 20 also, even though it says under the addons that it is deactivated.

EDIT: just tested and works fine, so as you say it is only cosmetic, at least for antibanner smile.gif

Have installed FF v17 ESR and of course, as you say, all the K add-ons are compatible. Good. I see no real reason not to go with this option for the time being at least. Of course, when the ESR is updated to v24 later in the year, will we find that, at least initially, these add-ons are, once more, incompatible? I look forward with great interest to finding that out!

Several have asked what the ESR acronym stands for or what the Firefox ESR version really is. Here is one answer:

"Firefox ESR version is Mozilla's Firefox Extended Support Release, a community-led project that allows organizations to benefit from the speed, flexibility and security of Firefox while getting the support they need.

Who is it for?
Firefox ESR is intended for groups who deploy and maintain the desktop environment in large organizations such as universities and other schools, county or city governments and businesses.

Who is it not for?
Individual users who always want the latest features, performance enhancements and technologies in their browser without waiting for them to become available in ESR several development cycles later."

For more info and to get the Firefox ESR version go to:
