Hi guys,

Just trying out Moz 1.7 & had a couple of questions:

1. Do I need to apply an "iespyad" restricted list? If so, how?
2. Do I need to apply a "hosts" file protection? If so, how?

By the way, it looks good so far. Pop-up blocks, cookie management, active X & scripting controls all on alert from install. Quite impressed!

Thanks,
Tony

IE SpyAd is only for Internet Explorer, so you can't install that for Mozilla. Hosts files are independent from any browser and is part of the Windows OS. So if you want to use hosts filtering, use something like hphosts here http://webpages.charter.net/hpguru/

You might try installing AdBlock to substitute for the block-loading part of IE-SPYAD - this will block elements of pages by removing segments of HTML that you choose from them.

Signature file is under revision. This will be back shortly.
