How to install SiteAdvisor

SiteAdvisor IMHO is almost as good an invention as sliced bread. Here are concise installation instructions.

1. In Firefox go to

2. Click the big orange button Download SiteAdvisor for Firefox now

3. Put a check mark in "I agree to these terms and conditions"

4. Again click the big orange button Download SiteAdvisor for Firefox now

5. Watch the top part of the browser; an info bar will show. Click on the button on the right end of that info bar.

6. Click on Allow and OK (this allows Firefox to download an add-on from McAfee's web site)

7. Follow the prompts to Install and to Restart Firefox

8. In the right bottom corner of the browser window should be a green button "McAfee SiteAdvisor"

9. Click on that green button

10. Put a check mark next to "Highlight search result links"

11. Click OK

12. Close and re-open Firefox

13. Search for anything; from now on Google, Yahoo and MSN search results should be highlighted

YELLOW: Caution, something is fishy.
GREEN: Good to go -- as far as we know.
WHITE: Not yet tested. Do you like to jump head over into unknown murky waters?

Feel free to post any comment you may have.

Thank you in advance.
