how do I reprt an Extension that is allowing people to hack into accounts?
this youtube video explains it all. this program allows you to get into other peoples accounts who log in to say facebook, on an open wifi.. this extension should be REMOVED/DELETED/ and the orginator should be BLOCKED from ever creating another extension again.
So much for a SAFER WEB BROWSER?

Nothing new - unencrypted wireless connections aren't safe. FireSheep just makes it easier for users with limited hacking skills to be able to tap into an unencrypted data stream and retrieve specific bits of data - connections for 26 specific domains are what FireSheep focuses on.
Mozilla really has no control over an extension which is distributed outside of the Mozilla realm; if you checked, it isn't available from AddonsMozilla.Org, the official addons website.
This article explains how a Firefox user can prevent being a victim of that type of exploit.
