I was watching Netflix in a single FireFox tab (no new tabs were open), fell asleep, woke up, and there was a new tab open that thanked me for (supposedly) installing this extesnion. I check the Add-ons Manager and it had been installed as an add-on into my FireFox Browser without my knowledge or permission. I live alone, no one was visiting, and my cats aren't -that- savvy! Ha!
There is no excuse for this. Please ban this Jason Savard creep by every means possible, including by his computer's IP address, any smart devices he uses, etc. If you're able to track down his ISP, please report his activities to them, as this kind of activity is illegal and likely against his ISP's policies.
Please also include a reporting system in your Add-ons/Extensions page, or include a "Report Abuse" link on the pages for each extension that FireFox users come up with. I'm not happy about having to "post a question" in order to communicate this problem to you.
PS. I have tried to upload a screen shot of what I saw when I first woke up, however, your image uploading tool is not working. It pretends to upload a file, but even at a high upload speed for my ISP, it can't handle a simple .jpg screen shot (1400 x 900 dpi on a 17" screen). Please fix this issue as well. If you want the screen shot, please email me so I can reply to that email with the .jpg screen shot file. I'm not going to sit here forever waiting for some silly uploading-in-progress icon to never change to "Done" or whatever.
