Firefox 3 Honors Windows Internet Settings

August 3rd, 2008

FirefoxIn Microsoft Windows, the Control Panel has an entry for “Internet Options.” Many of these settings apply exclusively to Internet Explorer, even though it’s obvious that Microsoft wants them to be Windows-specific and not IE-specific. Firefox 3 is helping to make this desire into a reality, as it “now honors your Windows security settings for downloading applications and other potentially unsafe files from the Internet.” The author of the linked article hypothesizes this was done so that corporations, which are usually quite concerned about computer security policies, may find Firefox more palatable.
