Firefox security - is it safe?

Terry Brown

Likes # 0

Running through the settings on Firefox, I opened the TOOLS tab and then the ADVANCED option

Scrolling down I come to : Government Root Certification Manager

This was for TAIWAN,and had the AUTHORIZATION to check my Emails, which I object to.- My emails are for my private use- not some government body to store.

I have un-clicked this option, and it does not seem to make a difference to downloading except that they download faster.

Are their other security checks you object to?.

If you highlight the 'Taiwan' entry and click edit/trust--uncheck all three boxes.

Think that is what Terry Brown means. That's what I did.
