This add-on is installed silently by Softonic installers (see URL). It's crapware that linkifies random text on web pages, with on-hover ads and possibly new unasked-for tabs from time to time.


I have a copy of the XPI if needed.

What does it do that merits blocklisting?

The silent install. It bypasses about:newaddon

Sorry for the bugspam. Changing dependency chain to cut down some.
