I use eXe (http://exelearning.org/wiki) to make webpages. I uses its own modifiedcopy of Firefox 2.0.0.6 as working eviroment.

PCI detected it ad automatically started paching to Firefox 3.6.

Result: c:\Program Files\exe\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe is still 2.0.0.6 but my default brauser Firefox 10.0.2 in c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe is replaced with 3.6

Why PSI patches program in other directory, not in one it founds old version.

Hi ,

A similar problem happened to this user :-

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/122...

I/we are still waiting for Secunia to respond (despite a second and third prompt) .

It seems as if the problem occurs in both PSI 3Beta and 2.0.0.x and may be related to Secunia's "development" of their silent installers for "auto-updating" . Whichever , it is going to be a "problem" for a lot of Firefox users if this behaviour persists .

Perhaps you could also prod support to look into this , Maurice .

Take care

Anthony

Anthony,
I totally agree with your summary on auto updater issues.

I note there are many outstanding issues that support should be assisting on. I will bring them to the top of the list much later tonight to see if that gets a response.

Hi,

After investigating this issue, I modified our detection rules so this issue should no longer occur.

If any such problems occur again, please contact support@secunia.com and we will respond immediately.

Hope this helps.
