Windows 7: Firefox 3.5.3 Warnings

Windows 7 x64
Firefox 3.5.3 Warnings

Is anyone else getting the warnings from Firefox about add-ons concerning Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant or Windows Presentation Foundation?

It keeps poping up when I use Firefox 3.5.3.

Last listing.


Just found another thread in Security, but it doesn't explain what is going on.

Funny, I just came across an article on Lifehacker today referring to that very thing.

yes, I also got the warning. Firefox automatically disabled a Microsoft plugin, which I think is a good idea for security. I do not want any useless plugins and/or add-ons in my Firefox browser.

Apparently it's been taken off the blocklist ('s still listed on the site but it's not blocked anymore in the browser).

So I re-enabled it. I figured if someone really wants to hack my browser, have at it. I'm up for a challenge.
