Eset Firewall Firefox.exe path does not exist


Recommended Posts

  • ESET Insiders

I just updated Firefox to 40.0.2, and Eset keeps asking if I want to allow outbound access for Firefox.exe from the following path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\updated\firefox.exe   That path does not exist. Firefox.exe is not located at that path. There is not even a folder called "updated" in the Firefox installation folder. If I chose to deny the outbound access then Firefox has no internet. It seems like a bug in Eset Smart Security Firewall. Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm using Windows 7X64 Ultimate, and Eset Smart Security 8.0.312.0.

It must be a bug with Eset Firewall. I shut down my computer for a while, and now Firefox can connect to the internet again without allowing firefox.exe from a path that does not exist. I have been seeing similar behavior recently with Eset Firewall. I will send a bug report since it's starting to become a pain to deal with.

Definitely ESS doesn't display paths randomly on its own. The fact that you cannot find the path anymore only means that it's been deleted in the mean time. Most likely the "updated" folder is only temporary but indeed it's created by Firefox (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/936650for instance).
