When installing JAVA update(s), Yahoo Toolbar is "default" install.  Should NOT be "default", should be option.  Once installed, there are NO "option(s)" to remove "Yahoo Toolbar", except total removal of Mozilla.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install or update JAVA
2.Yahoo Toolbar is "DEFAULT" install during JAVA install or update.
3.No option to remove, except total deletion of Mozilla
Actual Results:  
Stuck with Yahoo Toolbar.  Do NOT want Yahoo Toolbar.  No way to remove, except delete Mozilla.

Expected Results:  
During JAVA Install or Upgrade, option to add Yahoo Toolbar, "default" should be "NO" (unchecked box).
>During JAVA Install or Upgrade, option to add Yahoo Toolbar, "default" should
>be "NO" (unchecked box).

You have to report that to sun, Java is from Sun and not from Mozilla.org.

>3.No option to remove, except total deletion of Mozilla
Addons installed by external software must be removed through this software. If there is no option you should ask sun about that.
You can however always disable the addon in the Firefox addon Manager.
