Updated version just released. 78.0.3904.97.  :)

There is no updated version released yet for Firefox regular (not ESR). The current version is 70.0.1

A newly-revised version of Replicator was just released today. v3.7.2

Thanks. I have Win7 and have about 6 browsers, both installed and portable. Some Mozilla-based and a couple Chrome-based. I think I'll stop doing the ActiveX Flash.

Corrine, if a user never uses IE is it necessary to install the ActiveX Flash Player for IE? Or can it just be removed? Thanks.

Same symptoms in Win7 this AM. It took me down for 3 hours. Not knowing what was wrong, I assumed I was infected and finally restored an Acronis image and all was fine. I'm sure by that time they had the fix in the pipeline. My problem started when I was in Palemoon and stepped away for a few minutes, only to find a script error message on the screen. Then slow as molasses and black screens. I had to do hard shutdowns too. Figured I was somehow infected. Instead I was apparently infected by the very thing that was supposed to thwart infections. All good now.

Quote of the week.  ;D  (Besides 'Press 2 for English')

I'm sure I won't hear from them until next week sometime.

I opened a ticket with MBAM Support. They emailed a boilerplate acknowledgement. Part of their response is really rich:

Tip! Upgrading to the latest version of Malwarebytes fixes most of the issues you may be encountering.

At least you were offered the upgrade.  ::)

Yes, but an upgrade with a long-known defect.   >:(

I hope that is a one-off error and it gets sorted out. I would be very upset if my lifetime licenses became invalid.
Just a warning: I had to open a trouble ticket. I opted to update by manually installing the download. When i tired to register, I got an error. (see attachment) I have 5 lifetime licenses and this one is the oldest from 2008. It has moved from an old 2K computer to an old XP computer and now to my current Win 7 computer. I never had a problem removing from a computer taken off-line and installing it on a different computer. In fact, it has probably been on this computer since 2010.

I went to the forum and discovered I wasn't the only one with a lifetime license to see this error.

It took less than a day to get support. The person who helped reset my license and I was able to type in my ID and key and see it registered rather than seeing the error.

I'll wait until the update is offered to the other 4 computers to see what happens.

Be sure to write down your information before you update, just in case you need to open a support ticket.

FWIW the problem is still out there.  I finally got the prompt to update from 3.1.2 to 3.2.2 on my Win7 desktop. I dismissed it and imaged first. Then I went ahead and let it install the 'new' version. Afterwards, I was presented with the "Free" version offering a trial. I input my Key and ID number only to be told the same thing as plodr back in August: "The usage level has exceeded the max..." So I guess I'll restore my Acronis image and go back to MBAM 3.1.2. What is wrong with these people?

A blond man entered the emergency room with his two ears burned. “What happened?” asked the doctor. “Well”, the man explained, “my wife was ironing clothing, behind my chair while I was watching TV. She put down the iron next to the phone and when the phone rang I answered the iron.”

“Wow that is terrible” responded the doctor, and what happened to your other ear?”

“Well” the blond guy responded “Right afterwards, the phone rang again!”

[sorry, couldn't resist.  8) ]

Thanks guys. Grabbed both (for FF and IE). Thanks, techie and hayc59.
