Browser security add-on keeps being recommended

Recommended Posts


Ever since I created and deleted a bunch of Firefox profiles a couple days ago, I've been receiving the "please install the Browser Security extension in your browser (Firefox)" message again and again.

However, the extension is installed in each of my profiles, and said profiles are correctly listed under Surf Protection.

I checked in about:profiles that no other profile exists, and also checked that the old profiles' folders were deleted, so I'm not sure why it's doing this.


Firefox x64 v70

Win 10 Home x64 v1903

There may still be some issues with the check for EBS (Emsisoft Browser Security) and multiple profiles in certain browsers. For now, if you don't want to see the notifications, then try the following:

  1. Open Emsisoft Anti-Malware.
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. Click on Notifications in the menu at the top.
  4. Disable the setting for Browser Security verifications.

Note: All this setting does is disable the notification EAM displays if the EBS extension is not installed.
