    I don't know exactly but don't think so.

    It can add it to Firefox just fine. This probably hasn't been seen so much because Superfish is preinstalled and Firefox usually installed afterwards. Perhaps Superfish only checks for Firefox again when it's updated or something.

    Yes, thanks BoerenkoolMetWorst :)

    Some initial articles about this did report that Firefox wasn't affected. But as you say, it was probably just a timing issue.
