Information on the update here (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/963707) and how to remove it.

I've only been notified today this update is available (using Vista), but I haven't installed it.

[edit: Hmm .. I think this latest update gives you the ability to remove the add-on, when previously the uninstall button was greyed out]

[edit #2 - if you have the add-on disabled, then it appears the update won't work. It says this:
To properly update the .NET Framework Assistant, this update must be applied while the extension is enabled in Firefox. To remedy the result of installing this update while the extension was disabled, uninstall the update, re-enable the extension, and reinstall the update.]

i've uninstalled it from my DT, will get rid of it from the LT tomorrow.

this is the second time that they've added a M$ extension to FF.
