malwarebytes website protection & firefox issue

Recommended Posts

hello everyone


ok i just installed this version today, in past i never use website protection because its annoying when visiting some website it giving short of false notification


so with the latest version dashboard mention  that my system is not fully protected

i thought everything should be better by now, and i also see that i can set various things on "web exclusions" so yeah why not enable the website protection


But it completely crash my system

*i keep my system clean, i can even count complete crash ever since first install mine, it less than 10times


well i know this not many person behaviour, but i have habit keeping lots tabs on firefox

and because firefox also count previous pages as 1 tabs, right now i have like 1500+ tab (inreal its like about 100tabs)


first crash is few hours after i enable website protection

in all of sudden, my system freeze/crash, forcing me to use reset button on my pc case


2nd crash, it immediatly after boot then when launch firefox, it crash/freeze completely... reset button again


as i learn it from malwarebytes, i disable website protection on next boot

it went back to normal


BUT for unknown reason, there no Firefox Session Restore

i will be really pissed if i lost my session, i really glad i am using session manager add-ons.... because this recover my session, not the latest but its like yesterday session

*if someone telling me to use bookmark, yes i use bookmark alot, but something that need only once for now, i dont want to bookmark those, also for things that often i visit, i tends to let them open


hope malwarebytes team can improve website protection system

regarding my issue, it obvious it caused by malwarebytes website protection

and also for rootkit, the anti-rootkit (beta) alone have same issue, so its not caused by broken installation process


so suggestion for clean removal process seems not needed

might try public beta, which should fix some issue in current version

but for now i will leave website protection disabled, as i not really needed anyway


other than 2 issue i mention above, everything else works well so far
