  1. Just to note I have Android 4.2.1, and although I uninstalled the main MB for android I do have Firefox on the phone with the latest MB for Firefox beta add-on. Just a different route to consider. I assume that the Crome beta add-on will also be available on 'older' Android versions.
  2. I think that you said it, Firefox ESR on XP. I understand, I had to run an XP laptop for longer than I would have liked to or should have done (budget reasons) only got a new one when it packed up. There again I still have, and occasionally use, a Windows 98 desktop. It's got some very expensive CAD software on it that would cost a fortune to update.
  3. Cheers rakesh, Yes, I was just noting that the previous "I want to downl´╗┐oad this file anyway" had not been working, the new one does. THB the downloaded programme did not work as I wanted anyway (some files it would not character count) and I've now uninstalled it.

    Is there a better place to ask my question?

    As for your question itself, sorry I know nothing about mac OS, maybe someone else does and at least they can easily see it now. I will say that it looks like a general header to set up the enviroment (pathnames, functions, variables, etc) to be used by a script. You would add the code that does the actual job after that header. (or copy/paste that header to the start of your code). The comment line "# Common setup for startup scripts" would support that it is just for setting up an initial enviroment. As for each individual command/parameter syntax, that would be specific to the OS.

    Is there a better place to ask my question?

    There is a better way to ask your question. You have posted a link, that refers to another link, that then has your question. Why not repeat the question here so people don't have to follow the links? (Many won't on principle - who knows what it links or redirects to?). And please enclose the script in code tags. Use the <> symbol on the editor menu bar. Any/all code posted on any forum should always be enclosed in tags.
  6. Another installer download blocked by the extension after clicking 'Save File' in Firefox. (I've double checked and this isn't the known CCleaner issue). Disabled the extension and downloaded the installer file anyway, scanned the downloaded file with MB3.5 & WD which both gave it the thumbs up. PS. I notice that the "Download anyway" on the block page has changed, I tried it and it now works.
  7. I believe that I have now tracked down the cause of this downloading issue, see this post: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/228684-win10-media-creation-tool-download-blocked-mb-for-firefox/?tab=comments#comment-1242332 The devs are working on it.
  8. You can uncheck the entry for Filrefox 'Site Preferences' in CCleaner, that will prevent it from cleaning the file. Or you could add the path/filename as an exclusion in 'Options > Exclude'. As for a permanent solution from the MB side - Is there any way that you could get the extension to reset it's database when Firefox opens? (Similar to the 'remove-undo' quick fix that I found, that's pretty quick in action). CCleaner will not clean any browser that is open, so if you could reset the DB as soon as Firefox is opend it would cure the issue. Doing it that way would also work for any other cleaner app that may delete the 'permissions.sqlite'.
  9. I've tracked it further. It's the cleaning of Firefox 'Site Preferences' by CCleaner that causes the blocks to start happening. Everything else cleans without the problem appearing. On my machine that's the file- C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\06je2au8.default-1470890772048\permissions.sqlite
  10. Well.....just for a bit more info I took CCleaner back to v5.25. This is the oldest installer for it that I have saved, and is from December 2016. Running that still removes the file that the MB extension relies on and thus 'breaks' the downloads. Which indicates that CC was cleaning that location well before the extension started storing things there. It's interesting that the 'Remove' & 'Undo' in the Add-ons manager fixes the problem, without the need to close Firefox or fully reinstall the extension.

    v1.0.20 blocking all file downloads

    I believe that I have now tracked down the cause of this downloading issue, see this post: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/228684-win10-media-creation-tool-download-blocked-mb-for-firefox/?tab=comments#comment-1242332
  12. @rakeshsejwal I believe that I have now tracked this issue down. This morning I decided to test the downloads again. I tried to download both the Media Creation Tool, and MB3.5. And they were both blocked again! Something seems to have happened overnight, so some more testing was called for. Removed the Firefox extension. Attempted the downloads again without the extension, of course both were sucessful. Reinstalled the Firefox extension Attempted the downloads, both were sucessful. Shut down the computer. Rebooted and attempted the downloads, both were sucessful. Scratched my head, what else could I have done between yesterday and this morning? Well I usually run CCleaner before I shut down for the night, so let's try that. Ran CCleaner, shut down and rebooted. Attempted the downloads, both were blocked. Removed the extension, closed and reopened Firefox, reloaded the extension. Attempted the downloads, both were sucessful. I can repeat this at will, run CCleaner to clear Firefox and the downloads are then blocked, remove and reload the extension and downloads are not blocked. (PS. There is no need to close Firefox before reloading the extension, just click 'remove' and then 'undo' in the add-ons manager). So it appears that the extension relies on some file that CCleaner v5.42.6495(64-bit) is clearing from Firefox. I'll try and test it further to track down just what file CCleaner is removing that causes the issue, but this may take a while. Just to be clear this is the normal cleaning function of CCleaner, I don't/didn't use the registry cleaner function.

    v1.0.20 blocking all file downloads

    From the report above by chantal11 it seems to be the Firefox update to v60.0 that changed the behaviour, (rather than the extension update). Maybe the console log I posted for Rakesh will point to something? Glad I captured it before the update.
  14. Firefox has now updated to v60 and the Malwarbytes extension to v1.0.21 The downloading block on the installer has gone and it downloads OK now.
