I just updated an extension in Thunderbird, but it thought I had updated an extension in Firefox. Perhaps it's because the file type is the same (".xpi) that it "thought" that that was the case. Otherwise I have no reasons for the behavior.

The Secunia server recently threw a "wobbly" resulting in odd behaviour after a scan.

Worth trying an uninstall & reinstall of PSI then a full rescan. Has the problem gone?

If not,what is the path to the problem?

FINDING A VULNERABILITY FILE PATH
=================================

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, use or switch to the ADVANCED interface, then :

1 Click on the + sign of the programme to "expand' it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. (Copy (CTRL+C) & paste (CTRL+V) the Installation Path of the file back to the Forum if U are unsure what to do next.

Hi

Could you share the name of the extension?
Then I'll fix the misdetection right away.
