    According to PC Magazine,there seems to be a security problem with Mozilla and Firefox. They recommend turning off Java script. How is this done and what effect(s) will one notice?

    What version did PC Mag say had the security hole?
    1.0.3 or earlier?

    Turning off JavaScript is NOT a viable option. Too many web sites need it to function.

    I tried turning off the javascript and found that I could not see two other gun forums. All I got was a blank screen but no listing of sub-forums, etc,
