  1. I just got an email notification that a reply was made to this thread. I had forgotten all about it. I just wanted to say that I followed the above advice (back when it was posted) and I still have not had the issue. It should work for others having the same problem as described earlier.
  2. Ok, thanks again for the help and the explanation. I have faith in Kaspersky products, it just didn't make sense until you explained it. I still haven't had the issue since making the change you suggested, and at the rate it was happening earlier, I would have gotten a few more of those messages by now, so I'll consider my issue SOLVED.
  3. Thank you for the help Ok, I disabled the "Scan encrypted connections" option. It seems to have worked, so far. I have one question though - doesn't this make me more vulnerable when connecting to an encrypted site? Not being able to scan it, that is.
  4. Thanks for the quick reply Rodion Nagornov. That is exactly what mine looks like too (same as scott1). I was waiting for it to happen again to post a screenshot, but so far it hasn't today (yet).
  5. I didn't start a new thread because I am having the same problem as the OP. I don't always get the error, only some of the time. I am using FF v26 and KIS v14.0.0.4651(d). I have KIS set to update every day so I assume this is the most recent version. Any help is appreciated.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. A little more info... http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?s=&am...st&p=438574 I just found that link while searching the web for more clues to my problem. I actually tried what Lucian Bara suggested as my first attempt to solve this and it didn't help (I actually disabled the Web Anti-virus component altogether). It seems though, as per Lucian Bara that KIS is indeed caching at least part of the download before passing it to FF as I suspected. Knowing this, this is really starting to bug me now - not in a negative way, but rather in a "how the hell do I stop it from doing this?" way.. I understand why it has to be this way but I am willing to sacrifice the scanning during download for having my download window/progress bar back. KIS will scan the completed file at the time I access it.
  10. No, I am not. I am however running with Web Anti-Virus enabled, but when I disable it I still experience this problem. As I have said, I tried disabling various components and changing various settings - too many settings/combinations of settings to list here or I would have done so. I really would upgrade FF if I thought it would help, but I just don't see how it would make a difference. BTW, this is a fresh install of 2011 after uninstalling 2009 and then running the KIS removal tool.
  11. Let me add something I just discovered... When FF normally downloads a file, it creates two files in the download folder. When KIS is enabled and I download, those two files are not there, as if KIS is caching them somewhere.
  12. Thank you TOGS for the reply. I already have FF set to download as I need. Nothing has changed with FF - it is KIS that is different in this equation. As stated above, FF works "correctly" when KIS is disabled. I do not believe FF (or any other application) should behave differently because of AV software. I believe it is the AV software that should adapt to the other software that is installed on a system and not the other way around. I know I'm not the only one using an older version of FF with KIS 2011. I would think that there would be more reports if there was an issue with this combination of software, but since there are not, I am inclined to believe that I am missing a setting in KIS somewhere. I totally agree, but I see it this way... even the latest version of any particular software has vulnerabilities (though "theoretically" fewer), so I am content with the version I am using at this point. I have my reasons for not updating in a timely manner, but I will leave those for another discussion because those reason are admittedly very debatable . Anyway, thanks to everyone for the help so far.
  13. Thanks, but as I said - everything works when KIS is disabled, so FF is not the problem. I'm guessing a setting in KIS needs to be addressed, but I can not figure out which one. Also, I forgot to mention that before I upgraded to KIS 2011, I was using KIS 2009 and I had no issues with that version and the same version of FF.
  14. Using Firefox v3.5.10 and KIS v11.0.2.556 (a,b,c,d) When I download a file, the progress bar at the bottom of FF shows that the file is in progress of downloading but the download window doesn't pop up until after the file has finished downloading. I have tried disabling various components of KIS to try to narrow down the problem but have been unsuccessful. I must disable or completely exit KIS for the window to pop-up as intended. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  15. dr_aluool - Be sure you DO NOT add the "-" because KIS enters it for you after each five letters/numbers are entered. Perhaps that is what you have done?
