Security Alert When Installing Google Earth Plugin

#1 Postby abajan » Thu Sep 16, 2010 11:58 am

If “Keep Blocking” is clicked, would I miss out on some cool features at the page in question? Until a reply is received, I’ll just click “Ask Me Later” and go ahead and use the application on the page.

Thanks.

Yeah, you can't block it or you won't get the data updates.
