I'm told that firefox is free from spyware but a friend said they'd read a review saying it was full of spyware. Can anyone shed any light on this

No spyware whatsoever.

The review was probably from a Microsoft employee! :).

Be assured No Spyware.

callingman, could you direct us to the review? Was it online, in a newspaper or mag ? G

Thanks all. If I find out where the article was I'll post it.

Since installing Firefox 1.0 since it was released both Ad-aware SE and Search and Destroy have been 99 per cent redundant.

Interesting that you say that Stuartli. I was wondering if it was just me. I'm finding that AdAware scan is coming up with no hits, and was wondering if it was connected with using Firefox the past few months.
