Google shuts off anti-phishing feature in Firefox 2.0
Google Inc. planned to turn off the anti-phishing service used by Firefox 2.0 on Tuesday, a Mozilla Corp. executive said on Monday.
Although the two most-recent builds of Firefox 2.0, labeled 126.96.36.199
and 188.8.131.52, have omitted the defense, earlier editions of the browser

hosting identity theft scams. But Google is now shutting down the
blacklist, said Mike Beltzner, the director of Firefox.
