+ - Mozilla.com - 'blocked and flogged' at work

Submitted by SwankDude
SwankDude (466889) writes "I am a web developer at a large financial corporation. I mostly use Firefox when at work for the obvious reasons. I recently upgraded my PC at work and needed to download some Firefox extensions — only to discover that mozilla.com has been blocked at the proxy. My request for an exception has been rejected because 'Unauthorized, unlicensed software is not to be installed...'. I had a similar experience earlier this year when Google Groups was blocked because of the potential for NSFW discussions. How many of you run into similar road blocks that interfere with your ability to do your job and what (if anything) do you do about it?"
