Hi, For the add-ons section, I think all the add-ons should be scanned.


it is not my fault that if I download an add-on, it turns out to be a malicious add-on that executes remote codes. You are telling me: "This is not monitored for security through Mozilla's Recommended Extensions program. Make sure you trust it before installing." How can I trust it if I don't know anything about it?? or if it is new? -Most of people here who are downloading add-ons are normal users like me, not people who understand codes and developing.- Read reviews?? Do I understand from you that some people have to sacrifice for us so the rest can know if it is bad or good add-on? And by the way Reading reviews is not enough, For example Few months ago I downloaded a VPN similar to another one, lots of reviews say it is good, so I used it for maybe 1 month then I disabled it and stopped using it. Today I look at it in the disabled add-ons list, I find this message: "VPN has been disabled due to security or stability issues." I read more information about it, it turned out that it was executing remote codes....... That means I shouldn't even trust reviews!! Nothing happened to my firefox browser, but (it may happen) in the future, because of the already executed remote codes or or maybe those codes stole some information about me,....I don't know, but it may get worse who knows what those executed codes do.....


Now after I provided my (((important))) suggestion, I need an advice please what should I do now?? Should I now reinstall this browser and clean it and remove all of the history? Or change my passwords in ((every site)) I visited?? or what? Thank You Very Much.

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
