Snip.....Firefox has unpatched "extremely critical" security holes and exploit code is already circulating on the Net, security researchers have warned. The two unpatched flaws in the Mozilla browser could allow an attacker to take control of your system.

Haha! The joys of using Opera :P

Seriously though, all software contains holes, its just that IE was the only widely used browser, so all the attention of hackers was directed towards it. As firefox becomes more popular, more hackers will target it, and more holes will be found...

Firefox says a patch is being made. In the meantime, it's best to switch off the option Web Features/Allow Sites To Install Software.

It´s beyond me how anybody could actually enable such an option! It´s the internet version of a "Kick me!" sign.  crazy

It is even more mind boggling that a so called to alternative MSIE would even include a feature like that. May as well stick with MSIE where you know they allow this kind of stuff....

Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

Amen! That should come standard with a "euthanise me now for I am not worthy of living" program that activates once the 'Kick me' button is pressed.
