Firefox' authors claim it is the safest browsing experience around. I wish to complain about it. Internet explorer lets you set your security level to high, which prevents active x controls from running downloading malware. There doesn't seem to be any way to stop active x controls from running in firefox. Recently, an ad on salesspider.com completely closed the firefox browser and started running a fake scan on my computer. Just today, an ad on the chicago tribune website downloaded a virus/malware on firefox. I even have spyware blaster running, but perhaps javacool is not up to snuff anymore. In vista, internet explorer runs in protected mode, which absolutely prevents malware from installing via drive by downloads. Firefox has no such protected mode. I'm switching back to internet explorer, since firefox is quite an unsafe experience.
