I haven't read anything to the cotrary. Apparently this user doesn't have any issues with Kaspersky and Firefox.
I have read both pro's and con's though concerning Kaspersky being a resource hog but I'm sure that those comments were system dependent.
From Kaspersky's own site though neither Mozilla nor Opera are listed as being supported.
Take care. David

Thanks. I already checked Kaspersky's site with no avail. However, the first link in your reply gives some hope, as this user, like myself, uses firefox and thunderbird, and he sounds quite happy. So I might give it a shot.

Kaspersky does not work properly with Thunderbird. The scanner still works, but you need to disable all it's email options to still get mail. I reported this some months ago and was told it would be fixed in the next release. It was not.

Other than this it's a very thorough and fast virus scanner. The current version takes up about 20MB, which I think is perfectly acceptable.
