    [SOLVED] Re: General security question

    Thanks for that, open2reason (and everyone else). I took the test, and there's a lot more there than I'd ever have suspected. Most of it's harmless, but I'd never voluntarily publish all that....

    [SOLVED] Re: FireFox hijacked AGAIN

    Good news! (I hope). I've installed NoScript 2.6.8.14 and so far, no hijacking. I've also removed a couple of add-ons that failed to protect me from this malware (Browser Protect and No Redirect).
