Firefox-vista and Zone Alarm

  Taw® 20:50 19 May 2009

Been having a problem with the above combination, FF hangs and you cannot end process in task manager, computer then freezes and only option to reboot by holding in power button. Done a Google search, plenty of people with the same problem but no solutions other than dumping one or other of the above, which I would prefer not to do. All software up to date and this is the only problem anyone know of any work arounds?

i.e. don't work with Vista in certain instances, even if it claims that they do.

It's a known issue as you have said.

I dumped ZA and tried others such as Kerio, Comodo, Sunbelt but just didn't like them for one reason or another.

Download version 2.1.148 from the link above and I'm sure that you will be fine.

Vista's own built in firewall is perfectly adequate. You're only bogging down your machine installing another one.
