    Ok, I just downloaded the latest Mozilla suite (1.6).

    Now LnS 2.05 warns me that Mozilla.exe activates a couple of DLLs to connect to the internet (see the attached figure). This never happens with all the previous versions of Mozilla (<1.5).

    Now what is the right thing to do?
    1.) I do trust Mozilla, so I allow the activation by this exe!
    2.) If LnS controls, which application activates the DLLs, then there is no need for fear. If any malicous programs will try to use these DLLs then LnS will let me know. Is this correct :rolleyes: ?

    What about browser plug-ins? - Do they use Mozilla.exe, too ??

    Thanks,
    Thomas :)

    Hey Thomas M

    I dedicate this recent posts of mine found on http://www.wilderssecurity.com/index.php?action=display;board=13;threadid=19010;start=0#msg120499 to you… ;)

    Depends on what the Plug-In capabilities, and purpose is…
