    Hi there,

    I got from time to time phishing warnings with SOL and most the time they are fp..

    So no problem you think, I can say ignore, wrong.

    Joe, everytime I say ignore to the popup, after that I cannot anymore connect to any webpage. The whole Firefox webbrowser is down and no tab is working anymore..

    I'm using Windows 7 x64 Ultimate with Firefox 3.6.13 and latest Prevx Facebook.

    But it has nothing with Windows 7 to do, because I get the same errors with Windows XP SP3 and Firefox 3.6.13 on another older system..
    (I'm writing this on a laptop..)

    So what's the catch?

    I don't want to have to restart the Firefox webbrowser, only because Prevx SOL is not working properly.. :cautious: :mad:

    regards,

    Unfortunately this is how we've currently designed it - when a website is blocked, SafeOnline blocks all currently open websites as it is likely that the blocked website was opened from another website. We've improved this behavior in Prevx 4 so it won't affect your other tabs now but I don't believe we'll be able to change Prevx 3 to support the more precise website blocking, but blocked websites are very infrequent so it shouldn't be a frequent issue for users.

    Sorry it is not infrequent, it is often! :mad:

    Everytime I click an email in my gmx.net webmail account, I got this phishing fp..!

    How can I report fp in Prevx 3? Is that better in Prevx 4, can I better report fp phishing there?

    I cannot work with SOL anymore because of this, I have to complete disable it.. :doubt:
