    Sry if this has been covered.
    Seems like the latest version of fast dial addon(which is quite popular judging for the nr of downloads)for firefox displays some malware like features.
    I did not think of this before (thought that addons present there ware checked).
    Can read the comments on the page

    It doesn't seem to be linked with any form of malware o_O

    But it does seem to be in alpha stage, and therefore is very buggy.

    Maybe you should wait for a stable release before you install this add-on in Firefox
