    I would like to know if there is anything I should do to make sure that spybot, adaware, spywareblaster.......ect. Are working and configured now that I've changed over to Firefox. I guess what I am asking is that; are there any changes that have to be made to make sure my security setup is working with my new browser? Thanks Fr Steve

    Hi :)

    How the weather in Canada ? ;)

    No need to worry about anything like spyware as regards FFox.

    Never forget it is open source (just dwnload at official site or recognized mirror or open source community).

    If you're the worried kind, you may run spybot before installing FFox, and then again after.

    Nothing else necessary in my mind...

    But don't forget: firefox will only prevent spy/adware infections while browsing. Other software may still get you infected (Kazaa and so on)!!!
