    In the January 2008 issue there is a group test of Security Suites which incidentally Panda Security gets the Editors choice with Trend Micro 2008 recommended but my question concerns web browsers supported in particular F-Secure 2008 and Bit Defender Internet Security 2008 both of which are listed as only suporting Internet Explorer with the other 6 suites supporting at least IE and Firefox.
    I have checked the F-Secure site and not found any information in this regard but does anyone know if this is correct ?, If so it limits my choices with F-Secure having been my fall back when undecided on security software.o_O

    I have had zero problems with fsecure or be while using firefox.

    I own both, and I only use firefox as my browser.

    But if Firefox is not supported does it mean the web scanner is not functioning when browsing using Firefox or something?

    I have used Firefox without problem with F-Secure 2008 but am unsure of the significance that it apparently is not supported.

    it has zero significance.

    the http scanning in both BD and F-Secure work just fine on Firefox.

    do not worry ;)

    Only antisphising protection that is included in the BitDefender 2008 products doesn't work with Firefox. What C.S.J said is correct this is browser independent because the default internet port (http) is scanned which is 80.
