What's the deal with 4.0?

Postby JimmyW » Wed Feb 03, 2016 7:35 pm

I keep getting emails about V.4, so I go to the download link and install what's represented as 4.0. AFAIK, my LastPass does not get upgraded to 4.0. It may sound dumb, but I can't even find the "About" menu to see exactly what version I have. Can you clarify things for me? Thanks.

You can upgrade freshly:

Uninstall your current LastPass version by going to Control Panel --> Programs and Features

Restart your computer.

Install the latest release:

Thanks, but it didn't work. I uninstalled from Control Panel and, after I ran the installer, I see that my version: is 3.2.42.

FF is the browser in question?

From Firefox -> Menu (3 bars) --> Add-ons -> Remove LastPass.

Restart the browser and then install the latest release from the following URL:

Thanks very much! it worked. Installing the extension with you installed did the trick.

I tried this on a Win 8.1 and 7 machine. All tries result in apparently downloading something after "allow" then saying connection failure. Tried multiple times.

Right click, save the file to your computer and try installing the extension manually.

Thanks for the answer. Sorry about the multiple posts.

However I don't understand what you said to do. I am just a simple user of the application. The posts on here are frequently a bit above my pay grade. Even the ones obvious to everyone else.

I read through the article on your link. But I don't understand what to right click and save. If you can tell me what to right click, do I just save to to a directory somewhere? Or does it have to go to the desktop (which I basically never use).
