+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #963776 +++

Installed by 'Advanced SystemCare' installer from iobit.com. The add-on only appeared for me after I rebooted my VM, at which point it was enabled without showing about:newaddon.

Looks like a Spigot add-on, like the IObit Apps Toolbar. Just contacted the developer about it.
The fix for the Start Page has been released.
This is still silently installed by the Vuze installer.
The fix has been released for Start Page.
Dan, what can be done to prevent running into this problem regularly? It seems like there are always new installers that are installing this add-on without following our guidelines.

Just got infected by this again, as a silent side-install from the Media Player Codec Pack installer on c|net.
The fix has been sent to Media Player Codec, and we are waiting on them to release the update.

This now goes by {32da2f20-827d-40aa-a3b4-2fc4a294352e} as well.
