Firefox and Spybot

Recommended Posts

Spybot:

Spybot bad checksum error means that the definition file is corrupted.

Choosing another location to download the file can sometimes cure it and result in the file downloading ok.

I nearly always download it from one of the Safer Networking links.

Edit,

I have before now gone through the following routine until I get it:

First download results in bad checksum,

Try another location, still get bad checksum,

Close and then re-open Spybot, try again, still bad checksum,

Close Spybot, run CCleaner, then re-open Spybot, try again still bad checksum,

Close everything that is open, restart PC, try again, and it works.

Just persevere and you get it in the end. :hello:


Firefox:

I don't actually know why Firefox is not displaying images correctly.

Do they display ok in another browser?

Do you have a link to a page where they are not displaying?

It displayed ok for me.

I will look into it a bit more.

Edit,

Go to Tools>Options>Web Features

Make sure there is not a tick in the box next to 'for the originating website only'

Click OK, and try again.
