    C'mon TH-13,

    I haven't messed with 3.0 yet, but that is not the issue:

    as well as prior versions of Firefox 2.0.x.
    So it is a fundamental design/architecture thing and not specific to 3.0?

    Who cares? Atleaast they know about that.

    They knew about it and didn't address it. That bothers me. It's very Microsoft-ish.

    Not unlike most browser based vulnerabilities that we see these days, user interaction is required such as clicking on a link in email or visiting a malicious web page.
    People should know better anyway ... but sadly enough a lot of people don't.
