Is "Speed Addon" a valid addon from Mozilla?
I just noticed this addon, and I'm pretty sure I didn't install it manually. There is no option to see additional info, I can only disable or remove it. Should I be suspicious? See screenshot for addon version info. Thanks!
Yes, be suspicious. I don't see that add-on listed at the official add-ons website. My advice is to remove it.Read this answer in context 👍 1

Thank you edmeister, I have removed it. Firefox runs as slowly as ever, so its removal hasn't changed anything ;)
