How do I Turn off Banking Protection

Posted

Firefox Updated today, and now I can't log into many sites because the Banking Protection is active I get the message: "Banking protection is active (I removed URL of site I'm trying to access.)

To protect your transactions, some web sites are blocked during the banking session.

Allow the web site if you need to access it to complete your transaction. End the Banking protection session when your transaction is complete."

But there is no way to end the Banking Protection Session. Yesterday there was a tab to do so, today it's not there, and although I've logged out of the bank, the protection is still active. Definitely has to do with today's (2/1/19) update as worked fine yesterday. The "Allow Web Site" button is also not working.

Turns out problem was in "Security Suite" but I misread it when it popped up in the Firefox window.. Thanks for setting me straight, as now can find solution. 2 updates at same time, confused me.
