Was just looking at Tools/options/advanced on Firefox and the box labelled
"Allow websites to install software" is ticked. This seems to be the default option. This seems to my untutored eye to be dangerous - or is it that you will be asked if this is ok ?

You can uncheck it but then you will have to check it when you want to install extensions ,themes etc.etc.

Firefox should still pop up a dialog box confirming you want to install software like extensions for firefox. All this option does is stop websites installing software all together

So it should say:
"Prompt me to install software, or disable installation entirely"?!
