Do vista's parental controls work with Firefox

  Belatucadrus 19:53 15 Sep 2007

Looking at the bumph click here there are clearly many generic controls within the Parental Control section that could be applied to limit the way children can access Firefox, ie time control. But the browser controls would appear to be specific to IE. If it's a problem you could use parental controls to block their access to Firefox and force them to use IE.
I'm not a Vista user but that's how it looks to me, maybe somebody can confirm from a position of practical knowledge ?

Thanks Belatucadrus.
It does seem to block some sites on FireFox but not all. and it makes every thing run very slowly. I've found a Freebie called K9 by a company called Blue Coat that seems very good and does nor give the same speed lag
