Disable Automatic Virus Scan in Firefox 3

Fireofox 3 has a built in feature of scanning for viruses after each download is completed.That could slow the process specially if the file is big.That can really take some important time.So if you want to disable this automatic virus scan you just have to follow these simple steps.Yeah yeah the same old about:config trick.Here you go.
  • Type about:config in the Firefox address bar
  • Now filter the following
  • Preference should be : No
  • Set the parameter to False
Here you go.Now Firefox won't scan for viruses automatically after each download.

  1. I've got the same browser and Firefox runs on various operating systems including Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD but it'd be nice if you can add some tips to learn atypical things about this system. 2j3j
