A little while ago I started the thread below in which I said that some programs were not being detected and E. Petersen gave his explanation.

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/684...

However, today, I have noticed that Firefox is not even detected by PSI anymore!! I have got the 3.6.13 version but this was detected under the old version of PSI

Anyway solutions for this?

As in my thread above I reported many programs missing, I'm going to start checking the PSI list with "Revo Uninstaller".
I will reply here with a list of programs not being detected by PSI here.

In the meantime, I hope everybody is having a nice Christmas.

Please verify that you do not have any ignore rules preventing your installation from being picked up (Settings > Ignore Rules).

Then, ensure that all your settings in Internet Explorer match those described here, and run a full rescan: http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

Has this resolved the issue? If not, could I ask you to submit a software suggestion (With the 'Are you missing a program?' buton on the results screen), so we can check for any possible problems?

hope this helps.

Hi,

I think I found the something (I hope it's this.) After running a scan "Firefox" isn't in the "Scan Results" like the old version of PSI but now it is put under "Secure Browsing". Is this the case? If so then everything is OK, apart from the fact it seems a little strange that some Firefox extensions are under both "Scan Results" and "Secure Browsing" so why not Firefox?

Maybe resolved, let's hope!!

Hi,

The Secure Browsing tab is only for tracking unpatched vulnerabilities in browsers and releated software. Firefox really should be showing on the results page.

Please ensure that you have the PSI in full-screen mode, that the Firefox you have installed is not a beta version, and check the entire list again. Firefox 3.6.x (Which I presume you have installed?) is not listed?

If so, please submit a software suggestion, and we will examine the metadata on the file in question.

However, if Firefox is present on the Secure Browsing tab, it really should be too on the results tab.

hope this helps.

Hi,
I have just rebooted computer and now Firefox is back in it's proper place.

Solved, but I will still make a suggestion for missing programs that Revo-uninstaller has found which are not detected by PSI

Thanks anyway. :-)
