Obsoleted by Bug 338598. Only appears in Firefox 2.0a3.

Firefox 2.0 incorporates the Google Safe Browsing extension in its own Phishing Protection feature to detect and warn users of phishy web sites.

When a user clicks “More Info” in the dialog that pops up for a phishy site, they are directed to the URL in this preference if this Safe Browsing service is selected in browser.safebrowsing.dataProvider.

This is an enumerated preference: all preferences whose names start with browser.safebrowsing.provider. are read to generate the list of Safe Browsing providers. The * in the preference name is a non-negative integer, and matches the number in the other preferences needed to describe a provider. It also determines the order in which the providers appear in the options dialog.

Possible values and their effects
