Prior to formatting pc, I had McAfee Site Advisor installed, was recognized by Firefox, showing on top right of browser. After formatting pc, McAfee Site Advisor installation now not recognized by Firefox, i.e., not showing up on top right of browser, not even showing up in add-ons. Is it blocked now by FF, and if so, any good suggestions? I like the idea of something next to a site showing level of safety. Thanks so much :)

For anyone else with this problem, the solution was to install a different version of FF - Firefox Extended Support Release. Hope my research and time to find this solution helps someone else. Thanks!

Remove McAfee from your system. Reboot. Then reinstall McAfee.

This has not worked, just did it again - did not work, but thanks. That's why I wonder if FF is blocking it.
