Silently installed by 1ClickDownloader installer after it forces you to opt into it changing your homepage and new tab page to Funmoods. Does as advertised.

Is the New Tab add-on installer doing the Funmoods settings changes, or is it the 1ClickDownloader installer? Does the New Tab add-on itself do anything wrong?
It seems to add about:speeddial and use some crazy JS to make that the new tab page. Among other things. I'm not sure what relationship to the search setting changes it has, since it's installed along a Funmoods extension, but a quick grep of the code doesn't look like it's changing any other search or homepage settings directly (the homepage, keyword URL, and default search engine are all changed to Funmoods, though).
