10 step to Customize Firefox 4's security and privacy settings

Firefox 4 is the most secure browser Mozilla has produced to date. Its built-in security features include CSP (Content Security Policy), which can detect and lessen the impact of a range of techniques used by hackers to steal information.

It also introduces FISTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security), which will automatically switch you to the encrypted version of a site when you visit commerce sites such as PayPal. As secure as the software is, you can tighten things up further by tweaking the security and privacy settings.

It's worth managing cookies and clearing private data for example, as well as protecting your website logins with a master password. You should also make sure that the automatic updates feature is turned on. so that any bug fixes and security patches are installed as soon they become available. To do this, click the Firefox button, go to Options and click Advanced. Click the Update tab and make sure it's set to automatically download new versions of the program and any installed add-ons.
