Firefox doesn't warn about Attack Sites!?

Asked by savalas


I run Ubuntu 9.04 on my PC. Some days ago I installed Firefox 3.5.0 and upgraded it to 3.5.1 via the repository. Problem here is, that Shiretoko / Firefox 3.5.1 doesn't warn about Attcking Sites as it should (example site: )!?

With Firefox 3.0.12 or Opera there is no problem.

What did I wrong, does any one no a solution for this?

Many thanx and regards,

Hello Tom,

many thanx for your rapid answer. All of the three security options (warning and blocking of attacking and phishing sites) are activated.

So my problem still remains.

Please could you both report this as a bug-report? From the "Help" menu choose "Report a problem" and then your list of add-ons, dependencies and so on will be sent in automatically - then just copy&paste the same title and briefing from here or write something short like that ;) After you've posted the bug-report you should be able to see all the data sent about your machine in a couple of attachments worth scrolling through quickly. Oh and please link your bug-report to this answer to or at least send in the url links into here for us.

Thanks and regards form
Tom :)

I have just now commented in an existing bug report that's been declared invalid, to try to get it some attention.

Hi :)

Please look at the list on the right-hand side of the screen. If you scroll up and down then you'll see that both those bug-reports have been linked to this thread ;) I linked your 397907 yesterday ;)

Anyway, thanks for looking and again for giving easier links to those bugs. Keep up the good work :)
Thanks and regards from
Tom :)
