Firefox advises users to disable McAfee plugin


Robert McMillan

It's the last thing McAfee would want users to hear about one of its products, but the Firefox browser is advising users to disable McAfee's ScriptScan software, saying that it could cause "stability or security problems."

ScriptScan ships with McAfee's VirusScan antivirus program. It's designed to keep Web surfer's safe by scanning for any malicious scripting code that might be running in the browser. But according to Mozilla it has an unintended side-effect: It can cause Firefox to crash... a lot.
