McAfee Site Advisor plugin causes Firefox 4.0 to fail to refresh on new tabs.

Firefox 4.0 and at least 1 previous version does not refresh (when the refresh button is clicked) on new tabs, when McAfee Site Advisor is installed.

When the extension is disabled it works fine. Since I have been using both for some time, I'm fairly sure this behaviour started within the last 2 Firefox releases.

I posted this on Firefoxe's community forum and was informed that it is a McAfee problem.

Currently I have had to disable the plugin until a fix is provided for this.

Moved to SiteAdvisor.

It's been reported a number of times and I know that they are working on it.   There is also a problem in IE9 in 'Compact View' with the icon sometimes covering the navigation tabs at the top right corner.

There's an announcement regarding one known issue at the top of this section on how to get the latest version of SiteAdvisor or here:  http://service.mcafee.com/faqdocument.aspx?id=TS101144

However even that version has some of the problems.
