a phishing shield is one of those tools that will come in handy just about never, i dont even see why they'd have to add it to firefox i'm sure someone could just write an extension to work with some other checking server, possibly even the microsoft one that IE7 uses. I see a phishing filter as not something that would make me switch to another browser, sorry microsoft but its gonna take a lot more than that to make me use IE7 over Mozilla.

Very, VERY, old bump, but google released an anti-phishing extension, so it's already there.
