    I just recently downloaded and installed Firefox version 0.9.1 and would appreciate any feedback from folks that are also running ZA Pro(ZAP).

    With my default browser of IE 6 SP1 and ZAP....I always get a normal allow\dis-allow alert from ZAP for every IEXPLORE.EXE process I attempt to open.

    However....with Firefox....ZAP only alerts me one time.....no matter how many firefox.exe processes I attempt to run ?

    Sounds like you have firefox set to always allow and IE set to always ask.

    Hi Bubba,

    I'm running ZAP, FF 0.9.2 (fixes somes holes), IE 6 SP1 and I get the same thing. Only Blackspear (on another post) seems to be getting 2 FF processes. Maybe FF treats them as extra windows on a single process rather than separate processes?

    @ flyrfan
    Thanks for the reply and I wish it was that simple. I personally have ZAP set for every program\process to ask nicely before connecting....every program process :)

    Trust but verify is my motto.

    @ Devinco
    Thanks for the reply

    Yeah.....I saw that thread but I'm like some of the others....only one firefox.exe process running....no matter how many firefox.exe processes I attempt to run
