  1. If that is the case then there is a major problem in the price of the premium edition of Malwarebytes for Mac.......The price of the premium edition for Mac is exactly the same as the Windows edition. So why are less resources (in this case support staff) allocated to malware bytes for Mac?
  2. Thanks for the reply Alex. You could be right. However I would just note that for me Safari/Dark Reader has worked with your old forum for many years. Also: I have the latest version of Chrome on my Mac which also has Dark Reader. Your new forum works fine on Chrome/Dark Reader. Thanks Paul
  3. I know you are still getting rid of some bugs in the new forum. Just throw something into the mix that is affecting me. I'm on a Mac using Safari 13.1.2 I also use on this browser the Dark Reader extension 1.3.3 Dark Reader no longer works on the new forum. Thanks for any help. Paul
  4. For the past three years I have used both MB Premium & Adguard (the app, not them browser extension). I have had no problem at all running those two programs. Paul
  5. Thanks @treed for your input. I kinda knew that but my imagination went into overdrive when I saw that I had received no protection updates since installing MB version 4. (even though every thing looked fine.....no error messages etc) Thanks again. Paul
  6. Hello @1PW That protection update just came through @ 3:11pm PST. (I'm on the west coast) As I suspected I was fretting over nothing.....lol Thanks for your help Regards Paul
  7. I am running MB for Mac Premium 4.0.30 The protection is 4.0.436 installed on Nov 06 I am not showing any error messages etc. All seems fine I have also confirmed per above that it is the most recent protest action version. I find it somewhat strange that in over 2 weeks no further protection updates have been issued. Maybe I am just reading too much into this. Comments please MB staff. Thanks
  8. Is the latest version of protection for MB for Mac 4.0.436 ? Thanks Paul
  9. Sounds like a plan @treed. Obviously you will know this: The removal of this feature also removes the ability to manually check/update the protection. Thanks for the help. Paul
  10. Love the new interface.....great work Just one minor item: The old version used to say that the protection was up-to-date (or not) I cannot find this on the new version Am I missing it? Thanks Paul
  11. Then I would suggest that the link be removed by a moderator
  12. I have Adguard on my Mac. It is reporting the link in post #4 as a malware page & is blocking that link. Just so you know.
  13. " can't comment on the timing of dark mode, but it is being worked on as we speak. " Many thanks for this info @treed,,,,,,,,much appreciated
  14. On reflection I would have to agree with you about the quarantine upgrade. I have been using MB for Mac (Premium) for almost three years now so obviously I am satisfied with it. Hopefully new features will continue to be rolled out on a regular basis. Can anyone say Dark Mode. Pretty Please! Thanks
  15. I went to the link that you showed before I posted my remarks. "Malwarebytes has added several features over the past few months and has more planned for the future." Thats what was written in post #2 & that is what I am trying to track down. This is what I see on the support link you posted.: Bug fixes & improvements. Improvements to quarantine ( an existing feature that was upgraded) App block feature. NEW feature. I only see one brand new App feature that has been added over the past few months..........The App block. The rest are improvements or bug fixes. I don't mind that only one feature has been added over the past few months............but its not several its one brand new feature. Also In my mind "the past few months" is no more than six months & that's the time period I checked. If I am in error then MB staff please set me right. Thanks
  16. "2. Do I understand correctly that the yearly charge for Apple computers is the same as for Windows computers despite the fact that for Apple computers the application provides a lot less features?" That is an interesting question that comes up on a regular basis. I support the Mac version of Malwarebytes (Premium) But never the less that question floats round my mind too. I get it that not all Windows features have to be on the Mac version & visa versa. But from what I can see the Windows version is much more robust than the Mac version. The answer from MB is that there are not as many threats to Mac's as Windows. True. We are told that MB for Mac has features that Windows does not have. App block is one that is mentioned. But I have been unable too discover a detailed listing of "new" Mac specific features that have been added over the past few months. What am I missing? Thanks
  17. I agree, but I doubt that anyone from MB will be posting anything till after Labour Day.
  18. "Perhaps a description of how the Mac version of Malwarebytes functions would be sufficient" The pricing page on the MB website gives the major differences between platforms
  19. I have tried as you suggested to no avail. I do not think that feature is in the Mac version of MB Thanks
  20. "If you go to the Reports section and look at the list of "scan" reports, double click on the one you need, you will see it in your text processor app." I must be missing something.....Double clicking as per the statement above does nothing! ?? Thanks
  21. True, but if you uninstall Flash then any message to update must be bogus. Since I uninstalled flash I have zero messages to update flash. If you need to keep Flash then make sure that any updates are done through System Preferences on your Mac. I use Adguard to stop everything else. (The App, not the browser extension) I have had Adguard on my Mac since 2017 with very few issues.
