    I'm missing an opportunity to download a complete Foxit-Reader setup for offline installation. Since a week or so you only offer a web installer. I prefer to have a local backup of the setups of my installed software to be independent in the case i don't have an internet connection. In the old download page i could see the current version. As i don't like automatic update checks, because i don't know which information are transferred beneath the real check, i generally disable such functionality. Now i have to scroll down to the end of the page and open the version history to be able to check which is the current version of Foxit Reader. In my opinion this is not very user friendly.

    Please think about switching back to the old download page.

    Regards
    Klaus

                  Please update the virus library of Norton Security software and see if it helps. If not, please make a screenshot that shows the problem and let us know which version of Foxit Reader you tried to install. You may also choose to email the info directly to support@foxitsoftware.com. Thank you.

                    Norton Security is version 22.6.0.142, which is the latest, and all definitions are up to date via LiveUpdate. I was downloading Foxit Reader via the main download link, and foxitreader.exe is the file getting flagged. The attached picture shows the three tabs of the Norton warning dialog.

                    Edit: Hmm. The attachment is too small to be visible. Here's a link to the image: http://imgur.com/i6mTTHj

                      This should be a false alarm as the Foxit Reader package has passed all security/anti-virus scan check before release. Foxit marketing team has been contacting some anti-virus companies to request them to remove these false flags and put us on their white lists asap. I've updated your comments to our internal bug tracking system for QA, Dev and PM team's further investigation and update. Report ID#: 75977. We'll post the update here. Or you may write to support@foxitsoftware.com to request the update. Thank you.
