    Security and Firefox

    Because of the latest warning about using IE, I am using Firefox for the first time.
    What add-ons and security settings do people recommend for "hardening" Firefox?

    Thanks for your help,
    Dick

    I am still using IE 10, so my browser is not included. However, I recently uninstall Java anyway, and it appears the warning is related to Java. If you do not use Java and have uninstalled it, it does appear IE 6,7,8 and 9 are safe. At least is how I interpreted the warning.
