Summary: Extension block request: <UUID> → Extension block request: lite-search-ff-unlisted@mozilla.com
Assignee: nobody → philipp
These add-ons:

1) Have a remote script execution security vulnerability
2) Redirect searches, disrupting core Firefox features
3) Mask themselves as a "Flash Update" or similar
4) Use tracking mechanisms without consent

Given the circumstances they seem malicious in nature. I am blocking all add-ons by related developer accounts that have not already been blocked.
