    I am using your latest version4.1 and cant thank you enough. But I am having a problem with the cookie blocking in firefox3.0.Some of these show up in my cookies although they should be blocked. One that troubles me is tribal fusion and bs-serving-sys.com. I am using Panda anivirus 2008 and it doesnt detect anything(also ran an online scan) and nothing was found. About 1 month ago Panda removed some adware called coolsavings but nothing else has been detected since. Do I have reason to be concerned? Any advice will be most appreciated. Thanks so much

    This is the type of problems with all these detection software not one can stop them all. Try PC Tools AV Free and see if it can find anything hiding on your system?

    Hello,

    With Firefox 3, SpywareBlaster does not protect against tracking-cookies.

    I uninstalled SpywareBlaster, become useless for Firefox.

    To manage cookies, use CookieSafe with white list: https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/5207

    Hi,

    SpywareBlaster 4.1 has full support for Firefox 3.

    If you're encountering a problem, could you please provide more details about your system and configuration?

    Best regards and thanks,

    SpywareBlaster 4.1 can read sqlite files?

    I find it more efficient to manage my cookies with CS Lite. I have my white liste of good cookies.

    With CS Lite, I have no tracking-cookie. With SpywareBlaster, I had cookies (and the updates for Firefox are very very rare).

    Regards.

    Nobody to answer the question?

    SpywareBlaster 4.1 can read sqlite files?
    or
    Spywareblaster can modify a sqlite file? I do not think.

    Bye

    I just made an experiment with SpywareBlaster I reinstalled for the cause.

    SpywareBlaster modifies the file permissions.sqlite (comparison via SQLite Manager files with and without vaccination): 154 entries without vaccination and 384 after vaccination.

    So my conclusion: vaccination SpywareBlaster seems to work with Firefox 3.

    Bye.

    You might want to look into a couple of extensions to Firefox. Specifically, NoScript and AdBlockPlus (with the EasyListUSA filter subscription).

    I use Ad-Block Plus (and NoScript) for a long time, but in Europe, often used the list List FR + EasyList.

    My extensions for Firefox: AdBlock Plus - NoScript - CookieSafe Lite - Better Privacy - CustomizeGoogle - RefControl - Redirect Remover

    Bye.

    Hi I am currently running Winodws XP SP3 and have Firefox 3... I'm encountering a problem with SpywareBlaster 4.1 which I never had prior to the update to FF3. SpywareBlaster now shows Firefox as "Not Detected"
