For those who may not have realized this, the CHROME version can be used in EDGE CHROMIUM.

Is it just me, or did Browser Guard just start blocking Microsoft's "Bing" (https://www.bing.com/) website for "may contain malware activity".
I'm using Firefox 75.0 (64 bit).

Is this extension recommended if you already have MalwareBytes Pro installed?

Also,  I   fired up Chrome a while back after not using it for a while, and Chrome had disabled MB browser guard along with a few other extensions it said it no longer recommended because they found malware in them.  The notice said the MB extension was disabled because it changed access requirements.  I haven't turned it back on yet, because I wondered if it was one of the suspect chrome store downloads and because maybe I'm already protected with MB Pro?

I think I added the MB browser guard extension to Chrome about a year ago, if that matters.
