Krebs says that making this change will slow down Javascript rendering in Firefox 3.5 to 3.0 speeds but the tradeoff of speed vs. security may be worth it for most users.

Going to have to remember (ping?) to set it back to true after the fix comes out. Or, will the fix automatically reset it to true?

Now if somebody’d just update the DoD Configuration add-on so I can keep using Firefox while checking email from my civilian office, I’d be happy...

OFF TOPIC: FF 3.5 is horrible on 64 bit Win 7. Stalls, crashes, jumping, jittery, etc.

Then again, IE 8 (64) isn’t much better, and there is no Flash available for it yet, either.
