    A few minutes ago, I saw the first attack against Firefox.
    It was disguised as the Firefox wizard, and was about breaches in security, and how to make Firefox more secure.
    What was suspicious that Firefox does not do this kind of things; also, there still was the line at the bottom, where it shows where a link points - and it was even more suspicious.
    So guys and girls, watch out. I think there's more to come, and not just this simple little one. :rollno:
     
  2. I don't really like firefox. I do some web design and I always have some problems with it.
     
  3. Firefox is really my last refuge. They had better get on these problems really fast.

    It's still infinitely more secure than IE. Not sure if you're using IE though.....

    as for issues with web design with it... it is because you probably aren't writing compliant code. Firefox is written from the standards where IE makes their own.

    yup yup! I've noticed that Opera/Firefox are more of "what you put in (code wise) is what you'll get out (visual wise).", so if you put in something that isn't going to work, they'll be sure to show it, where as I.E. seems to be more forgiving and has more room for error....just in my short expirence though ;).
