Ο Firefox browser will soon prevent the injection of DLLs from antivirus and other third-party applications.
The antivirus των Windows και άλλες εφαρμογές τρίτων κατασκευαστών, όπως tools PDF κ.ά., συνηθίζουν να προσθέτουν DLL στο πρόγραμμα περιήγησης. Αυτό συμπεριφορά είναι γνωστό ότι προκαλεί προβλήματα σταθερότητας στους χρήστες του browser.
The foundation Mozilla φαίνεται ότι ακολουθεί το παράδειγμα της Google η οποία άρχισε να αποκλείει το injection code third parties at Google Chrome as of 2018. Google found that Chrome installations that contained third-party DLLs had 15% more problems than Chrome installations that did not contain third-party DLLs.
According to gHacks the Mozilla Foundation has begun to investigate the disabling of third-party DLLs in Firefox in the fourth quarter of 2016, but as the decisions have already been taken.
Firefox Nightly is already blocking the addition of a third-party DLL. The feature will be later integrated into the Beta and stable versions of the Firefox browser from the 66 version.
Firefox Beta will reach 66 on 29 January 2019, and Firefox Stable will release the 66 version on 19 2019 March.
How do you know if security mode is already enabled? It's simple: Open the internal address about:support and check the process entry at the top.
If it is turned on and you want to disable the new feature (only available in Firefox Nightly), open the following internal address:
about: config? filter = browser.launcherProcess.enabled
Do double click and set the value to False.
Activating the feature may cause problems for third-party applications, which should update their applications up to the 66 version of Firefox to remove the DLLs they add to the browser.
