People not upgrading to Firefox 3 due to porn?

Posted on Saturday, August 29 2009 @ 23:00:10 CEST by


Mozilla's Security Team found the number one reason why people didn't upgrade to Firefox 3 was the new location bar, which may accidentally reveal things you wouldn't like others to see:
“When we expanded the capabilities of the location bar to search against all history and bookmarks in Firefox 3, a lot of people contacted us to say that they had certain bookmarks they didn’t really want to have displayed,” Firefox’s principal designer, Alex Faaborg, tactfully explains on the Mozilla Blog of Metrics.

“In some cases users had intentionally hidden these bookmarks in deep hierarchies of folders, somewhat similar to how one might hide a physical object. Having something from your previous browsing displayed to someone else who is using your computer (or even worse) to a large audience of people as you are giving a presentation, is really one of the most embarrassing things that Firefox can do to you.”
