    Default Run ZASS without the browser security engine?

    I have ZASS with Firefox on Windows 7. What would be the effects of running without the ZoneAlarm browser Security Engine? It's just getting too frustrating with Firefox coming out with these frequent (and important, I believe) security updates and having to always wait for a compatible ZoneAlarm update for the browser add-on to accompany it.

    What dangers would I incur if I run everything in ZASS except for the browser add-on security engine?

    The following functionality would be disable without the Toolbar install.

    Anti-Phishing/Site Status Toolbar
    Blocks phishers, authenticates websites and warns you if a site is dangerous

    Advanced Download Protection
    Warns you if you try to download a dangerous program

    You can inquire on the Firefox user forum (register): https://support.mozilla.com/questions

    Sky Soldiers:

    Thanks for the reply, but I am very familiar with the Firefox user forum and several different versions are always being discussed on the forum. There are a large number of questions concerning compatibility of extensions when upgrading; currently upgrading from Firefox 3.6 versions or from Firefox 4-8 to Firefox 9.0.1. Firefox 10 is scheduled to replace Firefox 9.0.1 on 2012/01/31.

    Links similar to those below have been deleted from this forum in the past, but I will post them for the benefit of rickola:

    The scanning of downloads is on (true) by default. This link is a slight bit more technical: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.do...r.scanWhenDone

    With the information in all of the links that I provided, the user, rickola, can decide if he is trusting enough of ZA and Firefox without the ZA toolbar. I am a very long time user of ZA (since the introduction of the first free firewall; now use ZASS) and of Mozilla products and predecessors (Netscape). I use Firefox 9.0.1 without the ZA toolbar and ZASS as my security application. I do not use social media sites and am careful with where I go on the internet. I also use multi-layered routers for at least a more comfortable feeling.

    That's the kicker.
