    Hi Thefatfrenchfrog, welcome to Wilders.

    As your post is in relation to FireFox and not Anti-virus software I have moved your thread here.

    As to your post itself, can you please elaborate further.

    Cheers

    Blackspear.

    This sounds like a fishing expedition for people silly enough to "post their browsing IP's" to me. This won't be the first such "fishing expedition" on a security forum!

    Note:- All browsers as far as I am aware give to all web sites that you visit a static Identifying string based on your modem/ISP. But not your IP. Check this out for yourself at grc.com on their excellent Shields Up Test. On the first page of this test you will see for yourself what you are known as, to web sites that you visit!

    Some ISP's (I believe) don't use a static identifyer of this kind, but mine does! Perhaps your's is one of the majority that do too!!

    Regards Jo M
     
  6. I outta post you the IP of the carnivore sitting 2 hops away from me :) Be like getting two squirts in one stroke!

    Stay off them lillipads, y'hear?

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    127.0.0.1

    Have fun.

    Note : this ain't a pond. "phun" and "phishing" won't probably work. Jo M's right.

    Post my IP Address? No way José.

    That's breaking rule #1: Never give up your IP Address. (Posting it publicly or telling someone it)
