ESET 9 Blocking some sites including http sites, Firefox

Does the problem occur with Internet Explorer as well? Does temporarily disabling web protection or protocol filtering make a difference? Do you have another software installed that might potentially intervene in http communication?

Can confirm this issue, I've just downloaded ESET for the first time today.

Tested Nod32, alls fine, uninstalled (did not reboot), installed Internet Security, Firefox crashing since then, rebooted, reinstalled Firefox, still the following issues:

Youtube would not load some images and video thumbnails, videos don't play. When selecting find plugins in firefox stylesheet is not applied. When trying to download an addon it will fail, however, you can search for addons. Random firefox crashes. So i uninstalled Internet security and went for Nod32 again, which fixed the problem.

It's always necessary to restart the computer after uninstalling ESET, otherwise former drivers will remain loaded which might cause various issues (EAV and ESS use different drivers for protocol filtering).

Will remember in the future. However, I thought I was fine using Node32, but it just turned out I'm anything but fine. Things started when I was trying to downlad a file from Mega.nz in firefox. There was no "website blocked message" or anything like that, just blank page. Nice I thought, let's try with Edge then. Edge could not be started, window straightout disappearing without any message half a second after starting it. Okay, tried IE, but IE just said something about HTTPS connection failed. When I tried to open cmd from Windows+R it failed to start, saying 0xc0000018 the application could not be started correctly, an error message which I have never seen before today afternoon, after I had installed ESET on another machine. The other machine runs ESET Smart Security, Malwarebytes Premium + AntiExploit, this one runs ESET Node32, Malwarebytes Premium and Anti Exploit. A reboot fixes the 0x18 error, but not the browser errors. For example, https://reddit.comdid not load any css, only plain text, tried multiple times with different browsers. As soon as I uninstalled Node32 (without rebooting yet), stylesheet is applied when loading reddit, so I'm 100% sure it's caused by ESET. I'm also pretty convinced that the application could not be started correctly error also comes from ESET, since I've never encoutered it prior to installing. Btw, both machines I was reffering to are completely different notebooks (in terms of hardware) running WIndows 10 x64, latest updated applied. I have no idea what's going on there, but ESET is really causing weird issues for me right now :s

 

Edit: 0x0000018 error caused by Malwarebytes Anti Exploit, even without ESET installed.
