    Default Microsoft has thoughtfully updated Firefox for you.

    Well, if you've updated recently that is.

    To check, open Firefox, go to Tools > Addons. Extensions tab.

    Note the Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant 1.0.

    You can disable it but you cannot uninstall it. Unless you get creative...

    Open disclaimer: I don't know the mechanics of what this update/addon does. I do know that .NET framework has security holes that make me very nervous to have it stealth-patched into the browser I use because I don't trust Internet Explorer. I also know techie computer people who use computers more than me that are likewise nervous. Which is sufficient for me to have disabled it immediately.

    Thankfully it hasn't appeared yet... But I can see that yellow exclamation thingy in the icon bar, just waiting to strike at an inopportune moment.

    I thought this thread would be about when Windows takes it upon itself to update and restart. I hate that.

    What the fuck is this. I'm going to a 3.5 RC build now, so it's not compatible.

    I've just disabled it. I won't remove it till I'm sure I know what it is.
