The topic Title pretty much explains everything. I have tried reinstalling both of them as well.

The latest version of SpywareBlaster does support Firefox 4 according to Javacool's official web forum.
Are you using latest version of SpywareBlaster (v4.4)?

e/ I got it working but I don't know what I did. All of a sudden Firefox went from not detected to protection disabled so i just had to enable it. But i don't know what changed. :G

e/ However, does SpywareBlaster no protect firefox from ActiveX.. I only see cookie protection under the Firefox tab

Glad it's working okay now.

ActiveX protection is not applicable to Firefox as ActiveX technology is unique to Internet Explorer.
Firefox does not use ActiveX technology at all (which is one reason why it's considered to be inherently safer to use han IE).
