Title: Can Firefox Give you a virus?
Post by: shagger1 on September 24, 2012, 06:21:29 PM
Hi
maybe a dumb question but using firefox can your computer get a virus or
is the virus only in the firefox folder? I use firefox portable.

PS- why are so many topics locked? Just wondering.

Topics auto lock after 30 days of no posts. This keeps people from posting in old threads :wink:

No firefox doesnt get you a virus, what does when you go to web sites is java and flash. Always make sure you keep those up to date.

Good answer thanks
I use flashblock and dont have java installed-the only flash site I use is youtube
and maybe a couple other well known video sites-I also use guick java extension
so i disable javascript-sites dont need it,I hate that-my website I built without
using javascript so people dont get hassled.
