Trusted Files List duplicates updated File`s Entries

Any “trusted” file that gets updated will get a new entry in the trusted files list, but the old entries of it are still there too.
Safe mode defense+. No sandbox.

(This explains all. Best format for this bug)

This has been an anomaly for quite some time (I frequently update Firefox and Thunderbird beta programs) and I’m constantly removing the old entries. I hope the devs can work something out.

Thats why i wrote here.

At least, old entries should be able to be cleaned up, instead of searching them one by one in the list.

I assume that’s what the Purge button should do, but I always get “All entries are valid” (which the old ones are not).

We would very much appreciate it if you would edit your first post to create an issue report in line with the bug forum guidelines and format here. You can copy and paste the format from this topic.

To understand the reasons why we ask you to follow these guidelines please see below.

Bugs/issues can be impossible or very time consuming to fix if developers don’t have enough information to reproduce them. Since CIS is free, development time is limited. So if you want your issue fixed, please use the format below to describe it.

To avoid clutter, issues not described in the format below your post will not be moved to the ‘moderator verified’ issues topic. This means that the developers may not look at it.

Best wishes and many thanks in anticipation


(Hi Dennis) !

Just some thoughts.

This is arguably intended behavior. CIS does not identify files by path in the TVL, it identifies them by hash.

When you update a file, you might decide to revert to the old version later. You’d be a bit fed up if CIS asked you again if it were trusted.

If anything maybe this is a presentational problem. The file name could arguably have the version at the end to disambiguate it. But there’s a bit of a difficulty here - companies don’t fill in this field reliably. Maybe CIS could disambiguate by adding a or b suffix in these cases. Maybe also CIS could have ‘purge old versions’ button.

Best wishes


It might be but if you remove one it removes both, that is the pain of double entries.

Ah that’s definitely a problem!


Its a lot faster to read the sentence which describes this bug allready, and to do it on any machine yourself, than to write or read the standard format bug report.

If this was a joke, it would be funny :smiley:

Sorry it is not a joke you know the rules if you want it moved to Verified.

Otherwise it will be moved to here Orphaned/Resolved/Outdated Issues - CIS soon.

Thank you


Move it where you want.

Unfortunately we do need this issue to be reported in the full right format, and with all the information we have asked for, if we are to forward it to verified issues.

For the moment I am going to move it to the Orphaned/Resolved child board. If you do edit your post to create a complete issue report in standard format, and PM an active mod, we will of course consider moving it to verified reports.

The devs only look at the Orphaned/Resolved board if they have time, so please do edit the post and PM an active mod if you want it fixed.


Sorry I didn’t notice this earlier. :-\

Egemen has notified that this has been fixed, but may appear only in the final release:;msg546007#msg546007;msg546051#msg546051;msg546068#msg546068;msg547109#msg547109
