User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008042407 Minefield/3.0pre
Build Identifier: 

Privacy policy doesn't mention Google safe browsing as what is used for anti-phishing in the "Phishing Protection Feature" section of the privacy policy. This information should be included as recently in IRC someone is bringing the issue up that this is trying to be "hidden". Given there are those concerned with Google and its privacy practices (just do a websearch) and that there isn't any reason for this to be not included, the privacy policy should be updated to include "Google" in the wording and/or "Google safe browsing" possibly also with a link to more information about it. Including this would help prevent misinformation from spreading, which would easily be prevented with this minor change to the privacy policy.

I'm assuming that this is in reference to the Firefox Privacy Policy.  We are in the process of updating that policy as necessary for Firefox 3.  We will look into incorporating Google.  It's most likely that there will be a hyperlink to third party provider page like we did for the Mozilla Privacy Policy.

The document in the URL link now mentions "Google safe browsing" with links.
Does that resolve this as fixed?
