Yep, same problem here.
I installed the latest Verification Engine and wham, Firefox is constantly crashing. Finally decided to unistall VE and not one Firefox crash since.
I think a little more work is required with the latest update.
Yes, I am seeing that type of crash but not as bad as you are as I can successfully restart and restore the previously open tabs. I have left Verification Engine installed but disabled the add-on if Firefox. No crashes since.
Looking at the crash reports I found two where the Vengine thread is the one that actual crashed.
I’m not getting the Firefox crashes that everyone describes here, but I have noticed odd Firefox behavior since installing this latest VEngine update. When clicking on a link within a tab, the link said that it was done, but was totally blank. Then when I tried to go back to the previous non-blank link, it was blank also. This happened in 2 different tabs. I closed Firefox and restarted it and now everything is working properly again so far. I have never seen Firefox behave this way before, ever, so I attribute this to the VEngine update.
I just experienced the same Firefox crashing that everyone else has been describing.
I was going to start a post on Firefox crashes with Vengine, but after reading here, I thought I would put in my 2 cents worth here.
I’m on Windows XP home Service Pack 3, Firefox 3.5.2 with Vengine 220.127.116.11. Firefox crashes have been so numerous that I could not use Firefox at all. Started using Maxthon 2.5.3. Then I discovered that Vengine was causing the problem. Disapbled Vengine and all is well now. I don’t know if the Firefox error report will help in analyzing the problem but I am attaching it just in case.
I have also had crashes with IE8 and Vengine, but not as frequently. When I disabled Vengine in IE8, no more crashes. I do not know how to view any error logs in IE 8 in regards to this problem, so I cannot send a screenshot.
Ah well it looks like I’m not the only one having problems with the latest update. I experienced quite a few crashes with firefox so I switched to IE8 and also experienced several crashes. So I uninstalled Verification Engine and since then I haven’t had any problems with either browser.
in IE8 you can’t see details of the certificate when hovering over the padlock…
green border disappears very quickly
constant browser errors and crashes
Don’t worry I don’t mean that the green border gives false positives or something… I think they even expanded the white list of validated sites… And it is growing every day as more and more users are using verification engine every day! (:WIN)
you would be able to see details of the certificate when hovering over the padlock. The details are as follows: if the certificate is trusted, the green padlock is shown with SSL Provider and “Secured and Authentic” verification status. if the certificate is not trusted, the red padlock is shown as described on the Low Assurance SSL page
you can configure how VE should display the green border in the ‘VEAIDA Mode’ section of the Options dialog (right click on the VE’s tray icon and select ‘Options…’ menu item). I think, in your case it disappears very quickly because of mouse moving. try do NOT move the mouse pointer and the green border should not be hidden for the ages
as for browser errors and crashes, it had been fixed in 18.104.22.168, so if you can reproduce the crashes on the 22.214.171.124, it would be something new and needed for the details from you and the further investigation from the development side.
