    When I was using Netscape 7.2, Spyware Blaster loaded the protection for Mozilla/Firefox. I switched to Netscape 8.0. Spyware Blaster 3.4 did not recognize that Netscape is loaded and will not load Mozilla/Firefox protection. Sywareblaster programmer promised in this forum to fix with next update, but 3.5 still does not recognize Netscape 8.0 as a Firefox/Mozilla browser.

    I updated to Netscape 8.0.4. Have new 3.5 spywareblaster. It still does not recognize having a Firefox or Mozilla browser as shown on your screen.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled SB and I am still having the problem. It worked until I removed Netscape 7. With Netscape 8 the only version installed, SB shows Mozilla not installed.

    Netscape 8 functionality

    Does anyone with only version 8 of Netscape installed able to get SB to recognize Firefox?

    Netscape 8.1

    Can someone at Javacool give us a time estimate with regards to when SpywareBlaster will recognize Netscape 8.1 ? If the answer is never, please just tell us so we can move on to another product.

    Re: Netscape 8.1

    :rolleyes: There is none ;)

    Have you tried uninstalling both SWB and N 8.1, because you updated from 7 it may have lost a link somewhere.
    N 8.x is based on firefox so it should pick it up.

    I have Netscape 8 and it is a fresh install (not an upgrade). SB does NOT load support for it. This is a problem with your software, not our installs. Please let us know when you will support this version, as I also like this software, but will move on to another vender if you can not support NS8

    It;s not meant to be mean, and we do donate, alot. I'm one of the founding members of Chicago KillPhish, the largest anti-phishing group in this country. We put alot of support into these type of projects, and we move on when they fall stagnant.

    Just an update on this:

    Official support for Netscape 8.0 should be available in the next release of SpywareBlaster. :)

    Best regards,

    Doesn't this show that it is working for NS 8.1?

    Upon reflection, I have both FF and NS. I do not know if it recognizes both or not. There does not seem to be way to identify what is being protected.
