I am getting the following message from Mcafee about Firefox, I was curious is it safe to allow this as I havn't got any messages like this from Mcafee regarding Firefox before?

I believe that is a new "feature" with FireFox 3.6.4 It is FireFox's attempt to isolate plugins. What it is supposed to do is - if there is a crash of Adobe Flash, Apple Quicktime or Microsoft Silverlight plugins, Firefox itself will not crash - so you can continue to browse or reload the page and attempt to run the plugin again without having to restart. I have no explanation why this would be a new warning from McAfee unless you have just upgraded to FireFox 3.6

I only recently installed Firefox yes. I have heard people complaining about the plugin that it takes up too much memory or CPU%. I think I accidentally allowed it when copying the image, was just curious what it was.
