Do you use the AVG safe search or link scanner toolbars in Firefox 3.6? You will need to update to the latest AVG, otherwise those toolbars will not work in Firefox 4.

I have AVG 9.0.900 which includes Link Scanner 585-Active Surf Shield-Search Shield. These are the latest updates they have downloaded to my computer. If they do not work with Fire Fox 4.0, I am afraid you will automatically down load this and will cause my AVG protection not to work.

I think you need version 10 (also known as AVG 2011):

Regarding AVG FREE:

"...version 10.0.1209 is compatible with Firefox 4."

Regarding AVG paid:

"If Firefox 4 reports that only AVG Safe Search is incompatible with Firefox 4.0, please proceed according to FAQ 3271 to update your AVG.

In case Firefox 4 reports that either AVG Security Toolbar or both AVG Security Toolbar and AVG Safe Search are incompatible with Firefox 4.0, please perform repair installation of AVG, according to FAQ 3251.

Note: In case you meet this issue with AVG 9.0, kindly upgrade to AVG 2011 to rectify the issue."
