firefox and 'call home' addons



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

in past 6 or 8 weeks, i read a post about a sneaky addon that would do a
'call home' that tracked sign in entries and was intended to capture passwords
and such for banks and other such logins.

in past 3 weeks, i have had a drastic slow down of firefox in this install,
which i use mostly, but no slow down in other installs.

anyone familiar with this or know where i might find info on such?

tia.

later.



peace out.
