Firefox 3.0.1 and Commodo Firewall - multiple strangeness [SOLVED]


I am somewhat worried that my firefox may be trojaned.

I reinstalled several times, my system is newly set up and antivir checks everything clear. Also hijackthis does not report anything strange.

But Firefox generates strange messages from Commodo Defense+:

.) firefox.exe want to access esent.dll (service message control)
.) firefox.exe wants to access a pseudo-com interface spoolss
.) firefox wants to “Firefox.exe is trying to access display screen” (after I denied the above).

After denying all the above, the browser continues to work normally - strange?

The “firefox.exe” checks ok with md5 checksum with a newly downloaded file from

Could a trojan/virus from my profile manipulate my firefox.exe to do these things?
Does anybody else see this behaviour?
Is it worrying? I’m stumped.

Best wishes,


This is normal. Don’t worry :slight_smile:

It’s just the “features” that Firefox has calls for these things but doesn’t need…

I’ve these alerts before… you can allow them safely…
