Kaspersky AVP Monitor doesnt react while FF loads virus and writes it into cache, only when on-demand scanner is pointed there. The AVP Log then says:

04.09.2006 18:11:26    C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\...\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\82edkvwe.default\Cache\A8978B40d01  disinfection failed  Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Small.ddp

This has been the case on previous FF versions, too.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.switch on AVP Monitor, load FF, load virus infected site. Nothing happens.
2.Don't erase cache. Scan system drive. Monitor fires up telling virus in FF cache dir.

Actual Results:  
deleted cache manually.
sounds like everything is working as it should -- I guess opinions could vary on what the right behavior for an av monitor would be but that's not a firefox issue. see also bug 334880 comment 6, bug 333152 comment 1 for explanations
