adding Firefox to the play mode can close Malwarebytes


Recommended Posts

(5.0.1.24)

If i have Firefox opend and add Firefox to play mode, than Malwarebytes closes itself.

How:

open Firefox, (went to youtube.com), add Firefox to play mode (at this time nothing else was added for play mode) and choose Firefox with a left click -  Malwarebytes closes itself

- this happens only for the first time, you add Firefox to play mode,

to reproduce this: delete Firefox from play mode and restart Malwarebytes

From my understanding, the UI closing is expected behavior. It is intentionally closing the UI, because you are starting a "Play mode" application (usually would be a game). It is not quitting Malwarebytes, it's still running in the tray.

That being said, you are not the first person to mention confusion about this feature. And we will discuss internally if we want to keep this current behavior or not. @Katerina

Closing the UI is nothing i would expect in this moment, UI is no pop up or anything like it.

I would rather expect that i close my Antivirus...
