Disable Anti-Phishing Feature in Firefox 2

Posted on 15. Aug, 2009 by Webmaster Blog in Internet, Tricks and Tips

Mozilla is removing the anti-phishing feature starting version 2.0.0.19 of Firefox. The reason being given is that Google, which provides the phishing data via the SafeBrowsing protocol, has asked Mozilla to disable the feature in Firefox 2.0 since it relies on an obsolete version of the protocol.

The best approach is to upgrade to Firefox 3.0 but if you still insist on using Firefox 2.0, consider getting third-party tools like the Netcraft toolbar, Firephish that add phishing protection to your Firefox 2.
