Facebook Phishing Protector for Firefox Publisher's description
from Diego Casorran
Protects you from Phishing or Scams (through XSS injection attacks) while you're on Facebook.
Recently several scams have been propagated around Faceboo, putting your account at risk. This add-on is designed to protect you against them. Faceboo Phishing Protector will warn you when an unusual activity is detected, such as a script injection attempt or a website other than Facebook™ requesting your credentials (see screenshots)
Currently there are some white-listed domains which are allowed to inject scripts, please refer to the Versions History to know them.
Feel free to contact us if you think you've found a "false positive", we'll study it and if it's really harmless we'll whitelist it as well. May do you wonder why such whitelist isn't public (configurable from the addon's preferences), well.. it's just that it wouldn't be enough secure.
Please note that to be able to analyze/study a certain script injection we need the exact details of what is being blocked and where. While you can just copy and paste what is said on the inline popup, we prefer the more helpful information which is being logged into the Firefox's Error Console (You can open it using CTRL+Shift+J) - In the other hand, if you aren't using Inline Popups but rather Firefox's Notification Popups the Error Console will be opened by clicking the "Details" button.
What's New in This Release:- Added workaround for issue caused due no Content Policy Factory being unregistered when upgrading the add-on. This should only fix the problem with further updates, ie you'll still need to restart the browser when upgrading to this version.
- Fixed issue with the Tracking Protection feature which prevented the FB url from being manually entered into the url/location bar.
System Requirements:- Firefox 7.0 and later
- SeaMonkey 2.3 and later
Program Release Status: Major Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
