removing security sensitive flag, since the reported problem is public. this also will help to speed the investigation of the problem and figure out a solution.
WORKSFORME Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0 Extension installs, shows a bunch of alerts and scary progress bars, then says it's going to restart my pc, I have to click okay (no other options) but nothing happens. Could Norton Internet Security 2005 be protecting me? Perhaps because I was running Fx with -no-remote ?
I have the problem with 1.0 (at AMO) and 126.96.36.199 (in Approval Queue) and used MOZ_NO_REMOTE. The restart.bat from the extension pops up for a part of a second. This will only happen during the first run of the extension in the profile, so installing 188.8.131.52 would do no restart. No Norton software present.
This extension did restart my Windows VM. It's a good extension for a joke (if you try to ignore the frequent grammatical issues), but I'm not really sure it should be public. This would really scare a basic user and some of the dialogs sound like it might be Firefox talking to them, which they'd then associate with Mozilla doing this. I'm going to move it to the sandbox unless I hear objections by later today!
