    Re the problem of 209 items not protected by SpywareBlaster in Firefox.

    HOORAY!!!!! Fixed it. Open Firefox>Tools>Options>Web Features then permissions on Load Images. Remove All. Close FF then run Spyware Blaster and enable all protection. PROBLEM SOLVED......

    Hope this helps

    JC's solution via other post worked for me, however, upon checking your way VacuumDog, I never had any sites in that Image/Permission lists anyway, so guess that's the reason. ;)

    I had a couple of sites listed in there before I updated FF and installed SWB. After the installation of SWB I had approx. 209. It seems that SWB entered all the blocking in there instead of in the cookies exception. Now I have an empty image blocking list and a HUGE cookie blocking list which is the way I assume it is supposed to be as everything seems to be protected now.

    ahhh yes indeedy, that would explain why you deleted the Images Permissions.
    I could not fathom out why deleting Images from Permissions would work. Makes sense now. ;)
