RFE: Alert users on newly installed extensions upon startup
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/2009042708 Fedora/3.0.10-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0.10 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/2009042708 Fedora/3.0.10-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0.10 This is a feature request. The user in the thread made a valid point, and it seems like a good idea. If a new extension is installed (system or user level) then ideally on startup firefox (or any mozilla product) should alert the user and give them the option to ignore and/or remove the add-on/extension. There could be some debate about weather this is a usability concern as the prompt could concern or confuse users, however this could also be a menu or about::settings value that those of us attempting to be more security concious or generally aware could enable. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Use microsoft !
Firefox is already doing that. see also https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=476430#c6

Looks to me like they are discussing it, which means this request should be marked as a dupe.
