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.

This preference contains a link to a FAQ for the functionality; specifically, for the Safe Browsing provider whose details are stored in preferences of the form browser.safebrowsing.provider.*.

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.
