Trojans in Firefox Add-ons

This is a Google translation of parts of an article I found in a German publication:

Mozilla has discovered two labeled as experimental add-ons for the browser Firefox, which contain dangerous malware. Version 4.0 of Sothink Web Video Downloader is therefore Win32.LdPinch.gen infected with a password sniffer, master filer with backdoor Trojan Win32.Bifrose. The malware infected after you install a browser add-ons has infected the Windows system, it is not enough to remove the add-on again to clean the PC.

Hmm, I guess I am behind the times, sorry. But it does not hurt to repeat.
