Not sure where this post should go, move if needed.

1.  Say I am viewing a certain forum thread, and I log-in to the forum.  I am automatically re-directed to the forum main page.  It would be nice if I was re-directed to the page I was viewing.

2.  On the forum search page, when I am typing in the search box, the forum does a sort of wiggle left and right, like something is trying to resize in a weird way.

1. The forum is using SMF 2.0.7 so don't know if that's an option. The current version is 2.0.18 and still don't know if that's an option, but would be a nice feature if it can be enabled ?

2. No problems here. Good Luck !

As far as features and usability go, https://xenforo.com/ is really nice.  I don't know anything about the differences in security.  I know the comodo forums were hacked a while back, so maybe they are using SMF for security reasons.

Simple solution:

When logged out and viewing a thread open a new browser tab and log in. Then perform a browser reload of the thread page that you were viewing and voila you're logged into the thread.

Yeah, I have just been hitting the back button and then refreshing after logging in, but thought it was a bit ridiculous for such a big company to have such limited forum aspects.

Agree.

Big company but a small wallet perhaps? ;)

Free software does not fill the wallet.

This inevitably has an impact on developments and services.

They do obtain income from the Enterprise Edition which share the same codebase as CIS.

I  think CCS is  the new Comodo Endpoint Security manager. And from what I see CIS and CCS to share the same codebase like CIS and CES did.

In that sense I see continuity of development.

Under the hood of CCS in Advanced Settings you will find the AV and HIPS although they are not in the General Tasks interface. It appears not to use the light database as I did not find a setting to enable or disable using the full av database.

An interesting little feature for CCS is Containment Statistics Analyzer. Its probably for sys admins only. I cannot immediately think of purpose for end users for it.

In the file rating settings I found this:Nice to see a list of the IP addresses of the FLS servers.

At safemode. Making lot's of money has never been the idea behind CIS. Until further notice I believe that Melih's philosophy is still the most important motivation that drives the development: Give all that for FREE!!! What's the Catch? How does Comodo Make Money? .

Traditionally CIS and Comodo Endpoint Security Manager (CESM) shared the same codebase. So revenue may also have been coming from the CESM. It seems that CCS is the successor of CESM.

More important is Melih's idea to provide everybody in the world with free and top notch security application as a fundamental right in the online world.

Last time I checked Comodo AEP/CCS costs 300 USD per endpoint per year and there are large companies implementing it, according to Comodo's main website. So I would expect their wallets to be filled by that income from Enterprise customers.
