Re: Site Advisor blocks Firefox Tab

Jump to solution

Ex_Brit - Thanks a lot and sincerest apologies; I didn't realise there were different versions of Site Advisor as a Google Search brought me to this page and so I just went off the OP's topic header.

I now see the discussion tree at the top points embarassingly to this to be the Home and Home Office section of the Forum.

If you could move it into the correct section I'd be most grateful.

Thanks to everyone for your kind help and suggestions.

...Oh and a quick look at the 'About' box gives me these versions:

McAfee Agent (ver. 4.8.0.641)

McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise (ver. 3.5.0724)

McAfee VirusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware Enterprise (ver. 8.8.0.975)

Thanks.

...oh and last thing - 'Let Windows choose what's best for my computer' is indeed the current setting.

Thanks again for all your help Ex_Brit et al.

No problem 😉   Have moved this provisionally to SiteAdvisor Enterprise and hope someone here will know what's what.  Good luck.

Try turning your menu bar back on - the Site Advisor should move out of the way.

@jfreilly3 - Good work; that does the trick and now tabs are way below Site Advisor.  A shame this now makes the top of the browser look a bit cluttered but I'll always champion functionality over aesthetics!

I know I'm not the OP but I can confirm that jfreilly3's solution fixes/resolves the issue.

Thanks again to everyone for your kind help.

I'm sorry, but this doesn't seem like an acceptable solution.  No browser displays the menu bar by default anymore and who wants an entire line taken up by the menu bar?  Does anyone have a better solution?

I am uninterested in adding the Firefox toolbar as it's not part of the default setup. A browser is a personal thing, important to daily activities, and your software makes using Firefox difficult. Note, I'm on an enterprise box w/o admin privileges and running McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise v3.5.0.1021.

McAfee, have you opened an issue to address this irritating, substandard behavior?

In Firefox View/Toolbars/Customize, select either the Title Bar or the Menu Bar and the McAfee Site Advisor will move up (away from the tabs). The Title Bar is the better of the two options since it is a little shorter.

Thanks, this works but it circumvents Firefox' newest design language that saves vertical space in ridding itself of the menu bar. In other words, it's an ugly, band-aid solution.

McAfee should design a solution that is compatible w/ Firefox' design without crippling the user experience.

If it were my choice, I would never use SiteAdvisor because it's so disrespectful. But hey, I don't have a choice. What are McAffee's plans to fix this?
