Mozilla says Firefox phishing filter isnít working yet


Earlier today, I wrote about the new anti phishing feature in Firefox 2 Beta 1, which was unable to catch a single scam email in my testing. This afternoon, a Mozilla spokesperson sent me an email that said, yes, it doesn't work yet. In fact, said the spokesperson, this feature "was intended to test the core Phishing Protection framework within the browser, not to provide a full list of suspected scam sites."

Mozilla really needs to get its act together here, because thatís not the message theyíre sending out to people who download the beta version of Firefox 2. Ed Bott's Windows Expertise Ľ Mozilla says Firefox phishing filter isnít working yet
