  • Efficace, en complément d'Avira Antivirus Free
  • This addon is a disgrace for any antivirus company that is trying to be reputable. After opening Firefox after installing the Avira Antivirus Software, it asked me, wether I wanted to install the Avira Browser Safety Addon. Naivly as I was, I clicked yes.
    When I uninstalled the Antivirus Software, I wanted to Uninstall the Avira Addon as well. Sadly this addon was the only one of my many installed addons, which was MISSING the UNINSTALL BUTTON. The button was simply not there! An addon you CAN'T UNINSTALL shouln'd be provided by a company trying to get users to trust them with their savety!
    Hi,

    I assume you are running into this issue on MacOS. You can run the following command in your terminal "sudo rm /Library/Application\ Support/Mozilla/Extensions/\{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384\}/abs\@avira.com.xpi" to uninstall the extension.

    Best regards,

  • Indispensable par les temps qui courrent
  • Whilst using two websites to order goods, the delivery / payment page froze. After enquiring from other 'community' websites I discovered that disabling add-ons on Firefox, - specifically Avira Browser Safety add-on, cleared the frozen screen and I could proceed. However, this makes the browser safety useless, as one has to disable the antivirus Browser Safety to gain access to a payment page - an own goal; the point of browser safety is to not let important information (card details) become easily available. I used Edge browser - no problem found and hence have to use this browser to purchase on these two websites. Both websites are declared 'safe' by Avira. To be fair 99.99% of websites are no problem just two I use for online shopping. Firefox 64.0.2. (64-bit). Windows 10 64-bit. Is this a bug?

    Hi,

    would you mind sharing the websites with which you had issues so we can look into them?

  • Très bon module qui protège très bien des sites internet malveillants, même les publicités qui s'ouvrent toutes seules avec des chevaux de Troyes. En plus il ne ralentit pas Firefox. Je recommande fortement !
  • Some have complained about the price comparison feature. It can easily be turned off.

    Trackers blocked is redundant to Ghostery and does not include as many blocks as Ghostery. Plus you have to block the same tracker on every website that contains it rather than being able to do a global block like Ghostery does.

    The only reason I keep using it is because occassionally it does block a website. I don;t know if they are FPs or not but when it comes to security I will take a few FPs over a landing on a malware loaded website.

    Search advisor could be expanded to include more search engines including ixquick and DuckDuckGo

    Has promise but definitely needs work
  • The Avira-add-on does it's original task as browser protection. Not good - not bad - only acceptable!

    But the "price comparison feature" is a "pain in the a...". !!!
    I've never asked for this function!
    I've never accepted it's installation!
    But it's there when you don't need it!

    That's the reason why I just de-installed the Avira-Browser-Protection and installed a competitor tool!
  • I love Avira. I'm licensed through 2020 for 3 PCs. But this extension is not very good.

    It blocks and warns on perfectly legitimate web sites. PayPal.com is just one prominent example that I've encountered and seen other users report in their forum. There are many other examples, but I'm not interested in posting my browsing history online.

    The price comparison feature is annoying, and never useful. I also find it an odd choice of features to add to a security-oriented extension. It also makes me feel spied upon, because clearly someone, somewhere is watching my online shopping.

    The search result feature seems to only work with a few major search providers, such as Google and Bing. This makes the feature useless to me, because I care about my privacy. I don't use Google or Bing; I use Ixquick.com, StartPage.com, and DuckDuckGo.com.

    And lately, it doesn't block or even detect any trackers at all. When it did, I found it didn't block many by default. I'm not sure if that was by design. You had to go in and manually enable blocking, AFTER the tracker already loaded and ... did its tracking. This is a terrible design. And like I said, the tracker blocking feature doesn't work at all anymore, unless the "0" I keep seeing on EVERY site is incorrect.

    Remove the price comparison feature (your greedy partners can deal with it; customers should come first). Fix the tracker feature. Make it block by default. And stop blocking legitimate sites!
  • Hi, i use this extension from many years, but today i noticed that it blocks Google Analytics on many sites. Why this?
  • I noticed that Firefox was not being responsive when a page first loaded, meaning I often had to click on a link again. What I noticed was that the page wouldn't accept any clicks until after the green Avira menu appeared at the top middle of the page. I disabled Avira Browser Security and the issue was immediately resolved. As long as you are smart with your clicks, this Add On is unnecessary.
  • Avira is a German company it's safe it's a lot better then Avast, mcafee, and other american antivirus programs check out the listing the price is way cheaper then most.
