Alert - FireFox 3.0 issue Validating Windows RRS feed

  • General discussion


    Attention users of the FireFox 3.0 Internet Browser:



    An issue has been found when using FireFox 3.0 to Validate Microsoft Windows.



    Action: Customer attempts to Validate their copy of Windows using FireFox 3.0.


    Result: Validation Process will just not be able to complete successfully. (More specifically, the process will be unable to even start)


    Cause: This is due to the new FireFox 3.0 code listing the Windows Validation plug-in on it's Blocked list.


    Resolution: Microsoft is currently working, in conjunction with FireFox, to resolve this issue in their code. In the interim, customers can use Internet Explorer to validate their copy of Windows.



    Thank you,
