since the latest update of Cyberfox, a 64 bit fork of Firefox which used to use the exact same profil (path), my Cyberfox profile isn't detected anymore by those security programs.
This affects all programs which have a feature to check browsers for malware related changes. So far these are:
- FRST (Farbar Recovery Scan Tool)
- Adwcleaner (I've already contacted them at their offical forums, though another requesting party might not be bad)
- Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
- Roguekiller (whereas this could be low priority since it's only listening the extensions)
and probably more which don't come to mind.
Can someone please contact the creators of those tools (especially Farbar) to make a feature request that they add Cyberfox (and possible other forks) in their programs? It's just another location, so instead of %appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles the location to the new Cyberfox profile is %appdata%\8pecxstudios\Cyberfox\Profiles
extensions and everything else is basically the same as Mozilla Firefox (the %localappdata% path is also with "8pecxstudios\Cyberfox" instead of "Mozilla\Firefox").
Aside from that, I've got a question:
are multiple profiles from a supported browser (e.g.: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome) detected by those tools, the default one (which you've set) or the one which comes first (in an alphabetical order)?
