I've always felt sort of uneasy when installing XPIs with Mozilla/Firesomething. Oh well, this was bound to happen now that Mozilla's products have become a lot more popular. At least Mozilla notifies you that a website is trying to install something, but I guess this won't help people who obsessively-compulsively click "yes" to anything.

By the way, as Mozilla is a cross-platform browser, those exploits are probably cross-platform as well, right?

... to the best of my knowledge, no... when 95% percent of the world is using a PC, why bother screwing over the minority...

We don't get viruses either :-)
