McAfee SiteAdvisor quit working

Win XP Home
This utility suddenly stopped working in FireFox. Removed and reloaded, but still no joy. Works OK in MSIE 7.

I get the offer to upgrade, but when I click on "No Thanks", that screen reappears.

Any suggestions?

Am a bit unclear...

at the moment but as I recall there is something different about updating SiteAdvisor in Firefox. Its and add-on but not handled like updates are done in Firefox.

If it was me I would uninstall the add-on and start fresh with a new Firefox install from here.


Follow the instructions to a "T"... think that is the way I updated mine.

Hope this helps... good luck!

That Worked

Also running "NoScript" and found that had to be shut down long enough to download and install SiteAdvisor.

Many thanks---

It's always good to know when a solution works. I remembered updating it was different. I have "NoScript" add-on installed but mainly keep it disabled because it "bugs" me so much... not a good idea though!

Thanks for reporting the results.
