Default ZoneAlarm Firewall and Firefox 18

It should be noted : Current Firefox 18 not compatible with ZA Firewall..
This is first hand knowledge..the proof is in Firefox "tools/add-ons/extensions...

This situation has been ongoing for sometime.

[From Checkpoint]

"Unfortunatly Firefox developers update the software in a manner that always breaks our plugin. Its just how Firefox does there devlopment and we cant do anything about it.

So many times we dont have an updated version for several weeks after a release of Firefox to fix our plugin.

Sorry."

Unfortunately the only solution to avoid this is to use a different firewall or a different browser. I use the ZA free suite and have had no issues with Chrome.

This is true, Firefox updates is making too many plugins installed by external software to be incompatible.
