    a privacy bug discovered in in all Mozilla builds up to and including 1.2a as well as browsers based on Mozilla such as Netscape 6/7, Chimera and Galeon. The bug allows a web site to track where you're going when leaving the site whether you use a link, a bookmark or type a URL into the address field. this can be patched via a user.js file. Look at the site mentioned above.

    Still we know, it is far better than Internet Explorer at least
