I never knew this about Firefox!

An added layer of protection maybe however I have my doubts that it's using "your antivirus software" to scan the downloads unless pointed to an actual and official Mozilla article. My doubts are because I use Avast and the scanning engine takes longer to load on average than the "virus scanning" service done by Firefox 3.


I also wouldn't trust Firefox 3 to catch something a traditional antivirus, or modern antimalware program such as MBAM would catch. You should still scan your downloads with the security software you have installed.
