Secure apps (Vulnerability Scanner) and Firefox

It would be very useful if the Vulnerability Scanner could recognise Firefox ESR (extended support release) separately to Firefox standard version.

FF ESR has a deliberately lower numbering system and the Vulnerability Scanner always thinks ESR is out of date and tries to update it erroneously. As a temporary solution it would be helpful to at least have an opt-out from updates per app, or "decline and ignore" option.

Thanks for your consideration.

Hi @cavehomme1 

Thanks for your valuable feedback and we are sorry for the trouble.

Even though the Firefox ESR version has the latest security and stability fixes, it is given an older release name which makes McAfee detect it as an out dated version. But we will forward your feedback to our Engg team to include this in the future road maps. 

For now, please use the check box under Vulnerability scanner options to uncheck and prevent installing the official updated version. We appreciate your time to letting us know. Please let us know if you have have any other concerns.
