That's a great question Ricorocks and something definetly good to know. My Firefox browser is highly customized with add-ons and a theme!

Is it possible that one of my Firefox add-ons may have caused those weird detections a while back Pedro? I have been wondering about that. I do have one that gets a data update quite frequently. It's the weather add-on Forecastfox. The weather data and radar gif are updated on a regular basis, about every half-hour or so. Yahoo Mail Notifier would be another one that checks for new mail regularly. I also use an add-on called BrowserProtect that helps protect against browser hijacking attempts. A conflict there maybe? Since I'm using MBAE maybe using this add-on too is a bit redundant now anyway. Mmm..

I think the problems you experienced in the past had more to do with the fine-tuning process of our exploit mitigation techniques. Unlike IE and Chrome, Firefox runs plugins under a plugin-container.exe child process. Even then some plugins run as additional child processes to plugin-container.exe, like for example FlashPlayer. I think the problems you had in the past were due to our fine-tuning of the protections for plugin-container.exe and FlashPlayer*.exe.
