Firefox 3 added security?

Q: Firefox 3 added security?

So, I updated to Firefox 3 and all is good. I then spent the better part of a day trying to
find the magical anti phishing & other malware security updates to the new browser.
Finally I broke down and limped over to Mozilla to post my query. "How can I locate the
new security features to make sure my download went correctly?" The answer I got was that
the new features are hidden and only pop up when you have visited a site or downloaded a file with malware in it. I love Firefox, I love Mozilla, but come on, I should traipse around the
web until I get some verification of the security features working by way of a notification message or until my computer is so loaded with garbage it gives me a dose?

Preferred Solution: Firefox 3 added security?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Firefox 3 added security?

I've read everywhere that overall the extra security should help make for safer browsing, but none of the upgrades will prove a major deterrent for malware pushers.

Users will be able to skip some certificate error warnings

Mozilla is constantly working on improving its product, and in Firefox 44, along with the planned deprecation of the RC4 cipher, the company is also overhauling its SSL error pages.

Added in Firefox 33, these pages were used to signal users of a failed SSL connection attempt, one that might have put their personal data at risk.

While useful in some cases, the error pages also prevented users from accessing some URLs, which they were sure were secure, and not harboring any attacks.

These were the cases with old router configuration pages or websites that implemented insecure cryptography practices, which weren't updated to the latest standards and sometimes weren't even accessible to external connections.

Firefox's built-in error page prevented users from accessing these pages altogether, and many were forced to use browsers like Chrome, Safari, or IE, which, despite showing the same warning message, enabled them to skip it and access the site, regardless.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to password protect a folder so that if someone got to snooping around my system they would have to put in a password to veiw the contence of the folder? Is there a program I have to use?

Thanx
 

A:Solved: Added folder security

Do you have a password on your account? They would need that to see your files if you have them encrypted.

You could also put them in a zip file and password-protect the zip.

If you are running a full internet security suite do you "need" any additional programs or are you in good shape to thwart attacks on your PC? Also, I have heard that virus programs and firewalls conflict w/each other when both are running simulatenously, is it true?
 

A:Programs Conflicting and added security!

Yes, firewalls and AV programs will conflict if run simultaneously. Actively run only one.

"Suites" are not usually the best way to secure broad malware protection. First, the programming of a "suite" is complex and can lead to problems, esp. if you want to remove it. Second, parts of the "suite may not be the best available. I have seen references here at TSG recommending individual programs, and I have followed that advice.

I was streaming a TV show and got several popups. Normally I know how to deal with them but in this case I must have clicked on one of them.
About 3 dozen pages opened and continued to open up after I closed them. I wasn't worried about it really and uninstalled an add on to firefox but do not remember what it was called as well as the program itself from add/remove programs.
 
Firefox seems to be the only browser affected by it. I get redirected from time to time and there have been randon underlined links on most of my pages now. I'm sure it's in the flash portion of firefox because when I uninstalled reader and flash player the problem went away. Reinstalled the latest versions and now it's back.
 
I could uninstall firefox and reinstall it, and I'm fairly certain this would solve the problem. But I want to know what this is and how to rid myself of it in case it happens again.
Programs I have run in order:
TDSS Killer(BC)
RKill(BC)
Roguekiller(BC)
Malwarebytes AntiMalware(Filehippo)

Spybot(Filehippo?)
Microsoft Security Essentials(Microsoft.com)

Hi all,

I'm sorry to post again, but I've some problems....

Recently I've got a lot of pop-up ads for anti-spyware etc. I've got a flashing icon in my system tray that says I have all sorts of malware (which I think is malware), and I had these two icons added to my programs list "live safety center" and some security thing which I deleted. I've been getting a lot of norton alerts telling me that it's found and deleted certain viruses etc. I think largely it started with Virtumundo and I downloaded to Vundofix programs and ran them and they seemed to work except that I'm still infected and I have no idea how I keep getting infected. I've ran norton, spybot, AVG, cleaned all my prefetch, temp files, garbage files, cache etc using CCleaner, Clean Up! and ATF Cleaner. But it keeps coming back. I'm running spybot again now and I think it's found some more stuff. I'm posting my HJT log below.

Since my last post, where my IE was knocked out, I haven't been using IE but using Firefox instead, which is now my default browser. But the pop-ups still come up in IE windows.

Currently, I've run VundoFix and Vurtomondubegone, spybot, and AVG, and combined i thought I picked up whatever virus I had.

I have been reading the positive comments about Mozilla's Firefox from members of TSG.

So I downloaded the latest version and installed it; then updated.

I have McAfee firewall, MS Antispyware, AOL Antispyware and McAfee antivirus.

Since using Firefox, my security software has zapped 3 keyboard loggers and the backdoor virus.

I am an active user - one to two hours on the computer daily and do not visit unsafe sites - porn, music, video, etc. and do not chat.

In the two or so years I have used the above security suite, I have had only one piece of malware zapped and none have gotten through.

Now, using Firefox, I have had four occurances in the past week, without visiting any different sites or receiving any suspicious e-mail.

Is this a coincidence (I don't believe in coincidences) or is Firefox more suseptible to malware than IE?

Firefox 3 users, who also have jacked up the security settings on Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 to their most paranoid level, may find it trickier to download files with Firefox due to key changes recently made by Mozilla.

A:Firefox 3 Follows IE7's Security Settings

Interesting. It sounds like with version 3, the Firefox developers are wanting to better integrate with the OSes on which it runs.

On Windows (XP and later, at least), Firefox 3 honors the Windows Internet Options security settings.

On Linux, Firefox 3 now uses D-Bus messages (our Network Manager on Ubuntu discussion).

I wonder what integration oriented changes were made for OS X.

Loyal Firefox-convert for 3 months now, but I have a few questions that are bugging me and I haven't been able to get any answers anywhere else that I've looked...

security-wise, how good is Mozilla Firefox 1.0 PR?

Does it leave an index.dat-type record of all the websites you've visited? Is it really resistant to spyware like I've heard?

Spread the Fire(fox) and TIA,
Jesse
 

A:Mozilla Firefox 1.0PR security?

As far as I am aware, index.dat is purely a Microsoft process. I suppose you can check by doing a 'Find Files' on index.dat and seeing what comes up, apart from IE references.

Don't know anything about spyware resistance. Firefox has a popup blocker but I assume you would still need something like SpywareGuard and/or Blaster to stop some of the 'drive by' installs, or AdAware/Spybot to remove them (although not using ActiveX is an advantage in non IE browsers).
