Hi BC,
Haven't been here for awhile because all going very well. I am a longtime user of Firefox, Zonealarm free firewall, Avast & Malwarebytes.

A few days ago I upgraded Firefox to 4.0.1, mainly because it was said to have better security.

In looking over my list of extensions, there is mention of the Zonealarm security toolbar (3.3.5.1--latest) with no noted problem. However, further down the list is a warning that Zonealarm Security Engine (1.5.265.2--latest) is incompatible with this version of Firefox and is disabled.

Does this mean that when I am using Firefox, my Zonealarm firewall is completely shut off? If not, what part of the firewall is still functioning?

My main plan if there are no other suggestions is to go back to the prior version of Firefox.

Suggestions welcome. Thanks!
