Now distributed raman amplifierSun is getting into the game of secretly futzing around with FireFox! A recent Java Runtime update added something called Java Quick Starter to FireFox and just like with the Microsoft one, they did it without telling you or giving you a way to say “No Thanks”. Again, the uninstall option is not available.
I’m not sure if there is any security risk with this add-on but I’m getting a little tired of having updates to one piece of software go and screw up some other, unrelated, program. How do we tell these pushy companies to keep their cotton picking hands off FireFox? Maybe the folks at Mozilla need to block add-ons that aren’t explicitly requested by the user.
Anyway, if you find it in your list of add-ons, here is a link to information on what it does and how to get rid of it if you want to. They seem to work but require a reboot.
