I upgraded to Firefox 24.0 a few days ago. (At the same time, I also upgraded to the latest java.) I have a Dell laptop running Windows XP.

After I upgraded, Disqus comment boxes (and some others) no longer appear in my browser. And I don't mean fail to load, that's an old Disqus problem (occasionally). They flat out do not appear.

As a result, I've gone back to using Chrome, which shows them just fine. I like Firefox better than Chrome, but if I can't see comments on my usual sites, it's dead to me.

Chosen solution

Yes, that is what I have done.

Everything is working fine now. ~

I checked the Avast Forum, and the only solution to this seems to be to de-select 'Social networks allowed' and 'Web Analytics allowed', as the image shows.

According to the numerous comments about this on Avast, it's Avast being too stringent with their security, and making these changes will not harm our computers, as other Avast security settings will block any security issues anyway.

I guess it's up to us whether we want to take the risk.
