    I guess it was installed along with Nokia PC Bloat Suite.

    Now can I get rid of the broken addon? :'(

    Also,check this article.

    Actually,I was really annoyed when I need to wait a few seconds to confirm when I wanted to install addons on Mozilla pages.

    Just a fast simple tip, open regedit & see the extensions listed under :

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions

    .... and remove the crap ones you don't want there.

    I guess that key is only for invalid extensions.
