    What's New:

    To TOGGLE THE ALERTS (on or off), go to the "Edit Header filters" screen, look for "! Enable Security Alerts (Out) [z12]" and UNCHECK it (Out Column) to disable the alerts.
    If you'd like to enable the alerts, CHECK it (Out Column).

    As I read this, all the alerts that warn of cross exploits etc when I go onto such a website will not appear. Am I reading this correctly?

    Cheers :D

    On another note, without the pack installed I can click on Smilies and formatting links while making or replying to a thread, AFTER installing the pack and previous packs this is nolonger possible.

    I have been trying to figure out what was the cause, placing on one piece of software at a time and taking an image this morning proved the fact. I have just restored a image that has all my security installed except the filter and everything is back to normal. The filter ONLY effects Firefox, NOT Internet Explorer.

    Bypassing the filters once merged has no effect.

    Any suggestions.

    Cheers :D

    :eek: :D :) ;) :p :D :cool: :oops: :mad: o_O :( :'( :doubt: :blink: :-* :ninja: <----- me using smilies :D


    This is one of the threads on it:

    Hi Blackspear, ;)

    I for some reason too, have some issues (intermittent) with using the bypass list on my XP puter, but have no issues using the very same merged config. pack on Win2000, but this isn't in relation to Kye-U's 4.31 pack for me, as it's pretty much been prevalent from the beginning on my end. :doubt: ... At any rate, an easy work around for Wilders' is to include wilderssecurity.com in your browsers connection setup, listing wilders' under "No Proxy" and it will bypass Proxomitron for connections to Wilders'. ;) (see Screen Shot)

    HTH, ;)

    Steve

    Thanks Dog, I'll give that a go and merge the filters again to see the results.

    Cheers :D

    Very weird. I have been trying to figure which filter in my pack conflicts with the javascript buttons.

    I have found that none interfere.

    I've added a new filter, "IE: Malformed FILE URL [Kye-U]", to the pack and v4.32 will be released soon. :D

    I still need to do some browsing to make sure there are no false positives and to try to fix this weird smilie problem :(

    If I place Wilders in the "no proxy for" list, and then merge the filters, all is ok...

    Cheers :D
