    Thumbs down Forcefield: Shielding Bookmarks From Being Saved

    I would love for Forcefield to work but its become increasingly problematic. I can't open unprotected browsers anymore (not sure if this is regular ZAX issue or Forcefield specific) nor can I cannot save bookmarks anymore.

    Previously, I could open an unprotected version of Firefox (3.0.15) and the bookmarks would save normally, but the saved bookmarks would not appear in the version under Forcefield, even if I cleared the Forcefield cache.

    Even more annoying, my original bookmarks I had at the time of installing ZAX have been selectively deleted from the browser when I open it under forcefield. (Trying to restore some of these deleted bookmarks is what made me realize bookmarks aren't saving at all).

    But once I shut down forcefield completely, now the version of my bookmarks that appeared under forcefield are now what I see in my regular unprotected browser with ZAX shutdown completely. What in blazes!? I thought it created a virtualized version of the browser, not a replacement version.

    My temporary work around was to disable forcefield entirely and use the free Spybot S&D resident application for defense. But would love to use what I paid for...

    I thought it might be that I needed to upgrade Firefox but I cannot because the remote tools I use for work won't function under the new versions (nor do they function under IE)... But clearly that's not the case because I see compatibility issue posts all over the place with the newest versions of firefox as well.
