    But not supporting firefox.

    I want to give a trial to this product, but using Firefox and Thunderbird, NIS is not supporting both of them.

    Really, wow. Is this because of the Phising bar or something else?

    I would recommend this add-on to NIS users just for the Ad-blocking as you can add to it.
    Also there is an ad block list somewhere and program that'll enter them for you (if it'll work.)
    If you can choose not to install parental controls unless needed then even better.

    It does give you the choice whether to install Parental Controls or not at the first of the installation.

    AGNIS block list (last updated Jan'07) & ProWAGoN utility for NIS. You can obviously edit the block list (web contents) to your satisfaction.

    Hi,
    can you not image and/will you try the add-on pack again? (have you had a look around to see if other users are having any problems with it.) I know from experience way back when, this is a useful very configurable tool.

    Sorry you had problems with the add-on pack DVD+R. I don't use it myself, I was posting for those who was interested in it.
