    because FF doesn't support ActiveX
    Well extensions (xpi files) provide a similar functionality to ActiveX ... it could be an attach avenue. FF does provide a control (whitelist) to prevent exploitation, but a user could load something infected if they chose, but if you stick to using extensions from the Mozilla site, they should for the most part be alright, as the community would be a buzz if it were not. :cool:
    The cookie management in FF is excellent ... set it to alway ask ... if you don't need the cookie to properly navigate a site, set it to block always. And alway only ever accept cookies from the originating site.

    So really there isn't a great need to add much to SB's FF protection, but rest assured if there is a need, it will be updated accordingly.
