I saw something that might be related in some way or another.
I also use Slax Linux Live CD, and I saw that firefox contained something called Trackware.Alexa,
Trackware.Alexa should only affect Windows users as the following link
says, but If it made its way into Linux. We are not safe anymore are we?
We do not need "Toolbars" and those trackware/malware/spyware stuff that exists in Windows. We have to keep an eye out for what is coming. Now I can say Gooooooo..........ooo Konqueror!!!!
Thanks for the warning, I was looking forward to update Firefox, now I'll keep it as it came with Fedora 9.
