    Default Is the Firefox PB fix still working?

    More countermeasures may have been put in place. It worked a week ago, and is listed as in-place and enabled, but the PB images are gone again.

    I never expected it to be a long term fix, but I'm not deleting everything from PB until all fixes are definitively dead forever.

    Shop made tools has a bunch of the "meter" images again for me. That's the thread I use to check it with, first page has lots of PB images.

    I tried it last week, and ended up removing it. Not sure why but it made every page load ridiculously slow, and made Firefox crash a couple times. I can't remember the last time I had Firefox crash.

    Is it the same for everybody else?

    Did not have that.

    But it definitely is not working now. I may remove it and re-install.

    It is working flawlessly for me. No slowdowns or other problems.

    Removed it, and re-installed it, still not working. All PB pics in the shop made tools thread get the meter.

    Oddly, as a tie breaker, I looked at an old thread of mine, where I know the pics were on PB, and THAT actually works fine. I have no idea why one thread would be different. Obviously they must be PB pics if the "meter" shows up.

    I am using version 1.3.9 by BridgeTroll. That seems different from what I had originally installed. Might have been changed during a recent FF update.

    Even more oddly, in post 106 of the "what did you machine today" thread, ONE PB photo is fine, and the other gives the meter.

    Page 1 of the "Shop made tools" gives the meter, but other pages do not.

    And, finally, when I installed the PB fix, AVG announced it had blocked threats due to connections to voxelsoft.com, which I did not deliberately connect to. It has done that each time I have re-installed the PB fix.

    Probably should have specified that I am using this particular one:
