I'm willing to bet there trying to block out sites like keygen/hacking sites that do contain malicious code in certain files. Google already blocks most if you run a search for them. It will show the site but if you click the link from google it brings up a this site may contain malware etc.

IMO its dumb if I want to go on the site i'll go on the site. Just another feature to protect people dumb enough to click a banner that says congratulations your the 1 millionth visitor please go here and claim your prize.

Although myself I wouldn't visit those sites with my new computer I have my old p4 when I need something and don't really care if it picks up a virus or not. After I find out if the files clean I copy it to a flash drive and migrate the clean file to my good computer.

sounds good for noobs, but I'll stick with the add on that tells me, but doesn't block those sites.

I hope FF3 is better than 2. The current version crashes a lot.

All I want them to do is go back to having the browser be extension based. Meaning, it's a very simple, resource efficient browser. You then add the extra features you want through extensions.

I hope they take out all the useless code bloat. Firefox 2 is no longer the lightweight browser Firefox 1 and 1.5 used to be.
