I had just clicked to install some free Bible software. . .



The software is called "Daily Bible Guide" and installs a toolbar, home page, and Bible verse search bar. It mentions KJV (which is below my standards), NKJV, and NIV.

A browser window came up on my Firefox, offering the download, and I thought I'd give it a try. After I clicked on the download button, and then the install button, I got a message on my browser that said Firefox had blocked the installation.

The software page says it comes from Mindspark, and the search engine is associated with Ask.com.

There is an uninstall link, too.


If it would be hard to back myself out of it, should I not want it, I may be glad I was prevented from loading it on. Indeed, the message that Firefox blocked it sounds as if the Mozilla people thought it would cause me grief. But, I am surprised--I've never had something quite like this happen.

In times past I would have asked Pancake if he'd heard of it.

Does anyone have knowledge of this?

I tried to open a tab for myself by typing http://www.dailybibleguide.com .

It took me to http://www.dailybibleguide.com/index.jhtml .

I recall html is hyper text markup language, but I don't know what the j means.
