Are you saying that I can ONLY use IE8 to update MWB when I downloaded the program with Firefox? If so, I think I'd better get another program.

No - But you must have I.E. enabled - You do not need to use I.E. all the time - It is just that Malwarebytes loads via M/soft I.E. -

All your M/soft updates come in when I.E. is enabled , otherwise you will never get updates -

Thank You -

PS - Many members here only use Firefox or Opera or Chrome as a browser but they still have I.E. enabled -

No, it can be any version of Internet Explorer. Malwarebytes', like many other Windows programs, uses the same settings as Internet Explorer to connect to the internet. This is because Firefox and other browsers are not directly tied to your TCP/IP settings and Network Connections the way the IE is. It has nothing to do with a preferred browser and everything to do with IE's connection settings.
