It was enough to drive both my wife and I to try avast!, which we're now in love with.
I'm running Vista and was able to hide the feature (for good) while using the latest FF (5.0), but for some reason, whenever my wife attempted the same thing (Windows 7) the goofy, but cute, little umbrella kept staying closed as though the app was not 'protecting' her machine.
I didn't think this was true, and admittedly, we don't surf too dangerously (if you don't count her trying to find recipes from Europe/and or Russia lol) but it was obnoxious all the steps we had to go through.
I did a couple of uninstall/installs to see if I could find an easy way or a work around, but alas, at the end of the day, we both said, 'feh!' and then downloaded avast!
And so it goes.
Photobucket removed my cool flag - idiots!
Every calculation based on experience elsewhere fails in New Mexico.
