Recently I began getting a "Firewall off" warning from McAfee when I start Firefox. Yet when I check status in the McAfee app, all is normal and the firewall displays as "on". I've used McAfee and Firefox together for years now and have not seen this until recently. Both are set for automatic updates, so I'm wondering if a recent update has caused this. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
Please let us know the McAfee version installed on your computer and from where the Firewall is OFF message is popped up. Is there from Microsoft Action center or from McAfee itself.
The message is from McAfee itself.
Versions are: Livesafe 16.0.R18, Security center 188.8.131.52, Firewall 18.8.128, Webadvisor 184.108.40.206. Last update 2/14/2019 except for WebAdvisor which was updated today (3/15/19).
Please follow the below steps
Install and run MVT

I also have this problem that just started on 06/13/2019. I'm using Windows 10 on a Toshiba laptop. Firefox is 67.0.2 64-bit. Can't find the version of McAfee but it's the latest. What is the solution to this problem? I ran the MVT and found no problems. Do I really have to uniinstall and reinstall your product to fix this?
Also, is this a scam by someone or is it safe to click on "Fix Now" and will that stop the message coming up every time I start Firefox? I don't see any way of attaching an image to this reply but I have a screenshot of the message.

Re scam MVT is a legit Mcafee program suggested by a mod here that is if you are talking about fix it shown by that program. It might fix your issue depends on what it found. If not a clean reinstall should
