Just to let WSA users know there is a new Web Filter for Chrome and to get it go into Extensions and Delete the old Extension and go here and install the new one https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...ensi/kjeghcllfecehndceplomkocgfbklffd/details as it solves the continued spinning circles during searches on Google! Also some users might have the new Web Shield installed automatically so disregard the Delete and Reinstall part.

Fanboy. Ok, maybe not a nice term Muddy, but I will plead guilty to being one. Simply put, I am NOT having the issues you are having. If I was getting multiple FP's on a daily basis I would not be so very happy about it either. I would, in fact, probably be a bit grumpy about it.
Simply put I am a "FanBo"y as I really do not have issues, or at least really very rarely: maybe one or two a week on average. I do not know if I am simply a boring web user, or just what the explanation is.
I do hope that in the end the Web Filter, whatever is causing you so many FP's, is fixed.
Daniel can answer this easier, but basically often FireFox add-ons can be force updated as I recall by manually applying the Chrome extension files.
Can you please do a clean reinstall of WSA and Please follow the steps closely!
Sorry for my rather unflattering choice of words. I repent in sackcloth and ashes! Grovel...
I DO post and complain when something is broken, sometimes in public view sometimes out of public view, and sometimes via email. Thus.. .you don't often see when I am complaining, just the FanBoy side LOL.
I am pretty sure I was not on that Wilders discussion. I am registered there, but sadly I tend to neglect it. I really do need to spend more time on there as well!
It was very kind of TH to post my post for me. Unfortunately by reposting, some of the links got broken. I'm trying to repost the original but without success unfortunately :8
Unfortunately this post was blocked by the Webroot spam filter during the weekend.Thank you Nic (I assume it was you) for retrieving it from the spam folder 😃.
EDIT: I should add that a few posts later on, I apologise for the perhaps inelegantly chosen and somewhat cavalier use of the word "fanboy" to describe a couple of incidents where I feel some posters on Wilders and perhaps also here (I can't remember) went over the top in snapping back at others who complained of this problem. I grovel ... 😳
Again, I say no worries, and in general I am guilty as charged of that due to the fact I just have not had the same intensity of FP's that you have. I DO get then, but it generally is maybe once a week, two at the most. I must be a boring web user LOL!
I would be interested in the data you collect on your logging of each FP you receive, and I am sure Webroot Dev's would be as well.
The FPs are apparently due to a bug in the Firefox web filter extension. The Webroot development team are currently working to resolve the problem.
Thanks, TripleHelix, for passing on the information to Support and putting them and me in touch with each other.
