    Webbug detector for Mozilla/Firefox

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a Webbug detector for Mozilla/Firefox. I can't seem to find one in my Googles that will work with Firefox. Bugnosis is IE only. Any help here would be appreciated!

    I don't mean to be rude, but this doesn't really answer my question. But thanks for the info, man!

    Thanks for the reply, NemorY, but Bugzilla is actually for developers. It tracks bugs, but not the webgug type.

    although bugnosis is only for IE there is a feature in firefox that will block them.

    Because they are actually third party graphics if you go to 'tools>weboptions' you'll see two check boxs at the bottom. one to allow the loading of images and the second specifies that the images to be loaded must come from the site being viewed.

    although this will not show you the location on the page of the web-bug, which i find very amusing, at least you are protected from them.
    Bukhari:V3B48N826 “The Prophet said, ‘Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.’”

    Does Firefox have a list where you can put exceptions for this option? I can't find one.
