Mozilla Blocks, Unblocks Microsoft Firefox Add-Ons

Not cool, Microsoft. Not cool. Sneaking add-ons into Firefox that ended up messing up users' (including your editor's) browsers was a bad move. So bad, in fact, that Mozilla blocked a couple of Microsoft's under-the-table add-ons before finally working with Microsoft to at least make the .NET Framework Assistant add-on safe for use.

Next time, Microsoft, just give us a hint when you're going to do something like this (as in, mess with somebody else's product in a fairly serious way), OK? Thanks.
