    Hi, just got a good experience with FF version 2 today. I found a pay pal account information update e-mail in my google acount.
    I was sure it,s phishing but was interested so followed the link and got an exact warning from FF. Nice to see it working. :)
    I tried to proceed to the siye when IMON gave me warning about a trojan and then I came back.

    Did you setup google as anti-fishing reference or the downloaded list?
    You can find that information in the settings.

    Default one- download list.
    But the alert is just like google,s one. I think they took the same user interface/ appearance.

    I'm using the downloaded list also. Maybe Microsoft should do something like that as well. I'm not turning on their anti-phishing component in IE7 for that reason.

    I received this spam and I'm posting the fishing URL for members who would like to test their browser.

    I have not seen that thing on my firefox 2 yet. I mean, didn't got any warning msgs. like that. :eek: :cautious:

    Anyway, I just leave it to the default mode, but I just rely now on my callingID toolbar and McAfee SiteAdvisor when visiting sites. Maybe, it has some kinds of conflicts with the two anti-phising? :rolleyes: :doubt: o_O
