    The latest version of Firefox 0.9 is not detected by SpywareBlaster. The old Firefox used to be under the c:\windows\Application Data\Phoenix path, however the new version is under c:\windows\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox.

    I assume the path change has made it so that SB cannot detect the Firefox path.


    Thanks in advance,

    Brian.

    It would be nice if you could select the directory, where you have your Firefox installed to. I usually don`t install programs into their "official" directory.
    Thanks

    just make more sense to grab that information from its registry key.

    Is there a quick fix for this or will we have to wait for 3.2?

    There a user supplied work-around in this thread, but I can't say if it'll work or not. If you don't want to wait and don't mind experimenting, you could try it:
