Firefox security upgrades knock off website rating plug-ins
Once again, Firefox interrupts me to upload a security update. Then it tells me that it has to drop the plug-ins MyWOY (My Web of Trust) and Webutation. MyWOT came back on its own, but not Webutation.
I’ve noticed that if you accept ads, even if you don’t sell your own products directly – or if you sell through Amazon but not on your own site – some visitors will mark you down on “Vendor Reliability” or “Privacy” in MyWOT even though you don’t collect any personal information or require signon.
