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 22.214.171.124, Firewall 18.8.128, Webadvisor 126.96.36.199. Last update 2/14/2019 except for WebAdvisor which was updated today (3/15/19).
