    My question is simple: In older versions of FF, when I would immunize my sytem (and browsers) with Spybot, the malicious sites would usually show up as "Blocked" in the list of sites/cookies in FF. They no longer do and haven't for almost a year, so I was wondering why that is.

    Do you know anything about it?

    Support sent you another email 04/08/18.

    As far as I know this was the information provided.

    "To view more information about the protection enabled by Immunization, please open detailed view of Immunization. Usually there are 4 rows for a Firefox user profile. Description of immunised items are in brackets: Cookies, Images, Installations, Popups.

    Immunization entries are stored in the permissions.sqlite database of Mozilla Firefox. This database uses one table. It contains permission values for installing add-ons, cookies, pop-up and images. Usually value 1 is for allow item, 2 is for blocking the item and 8 allows an item for the session only.

    To check the items and values of a permissions.sqlite database a user needs a forensic tool or a sqlite viewer.

    If you would like to view the permissions.sqlite file, you can use a tool developed by Safer-Networking called FileAlzyer, which can be downloaded using the link below"

    This is not what I meant. In Spybot, the immunization works just fine.

    I was asking why the blocked cookies are no longer listed within Firefox?

    That might be a question for Mozilla then, Firefox has frequent software updates.

    What exactly does "open detailed view of Immunization" mean?
